LAHORE: A special court (Control of Narcotics Substance) on Saturday adjourned the hearing of a drug recovery case against Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah till December 3.

The minister did not attend the hearing, and sought a one-time exemption from personal appearance by filing an application through his counsel. The court allowed the application and adjourned the hearing by December 3. The ANF had arrested Rana Sana on July 1, 2019 and claimed to have recovered 15kg heroin from his vehicle.
