A team from Punjab’s Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) was unable to arrest Federal Interior Minister, Rana Sanaullah, on Monday due to the non-cooperation of the Islamabad police.

The establishment’s director Syed Anwar Ali Shah alleged that the capital’s police officers misbehaved with them.

Earlier today, a local court in Rawalpindi directed the ACE team to arrest the minister and present him before the court in a case relating to corruption.


“The police officials neither recorded entry nor departure of the ACE team and nor did they comply with the court’s order,” Shah said.

He stated that his department will inform the court about the day’s events and will devise a strategy as per the court’s orders.

Prior to this, a local court in Rawalpindi, dismissed ACE’s plea seeking contempt of court proceedings against Sanaullah for not appearing in a corruption inquiry.

On Saturday, a judicial magistrate issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for the federal minister over his non-appearance in an anti-corruption inquiry.
