LAHORE: The Sessions Court on Saturday reserved its verdict in the plea seeking permission to provide homemade food to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah in the jail, ARY News reported.
As per details, Session Judge Qaiser Nazir Butt heard the plea, allowing the provision of home cooked food to Punjab’s former law minister.
In his supporting argument to the plea, Rana Sanaullah’s counsel said, his client is ill; there he should be allowed to have homemade food owing to his worsening health.
“According to the jail laws an undertrial prisoner can be provided home cooked food”, he continued.
The court reserved its verdict after the arguments of the PML-N leader’s counsel.
The PML-N leader, who is currently on the remand, was arrested days after a large-scale crackdown on drug peddlers in Punjab. The sources said that Sanaullah was heading to Lahore from Faisalabad to attend a party meeting when he was taken into custody near Seghi.
