Supreme Court also issued notice to former DG Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) Major General Shakil.
Earlier, ANF had also requested the Interior Ministry to add Musa Gilani’s name to the Exit Control List.
According to sources, ANF officials informed the the court that secretary narcotics was trying to protect Ali Musa Gilani. The CJ was reported to have said that this was a sensitive issue, where they needed to tread carefully.
The case regarding the illegal sale of ephedrine was registered on October 10 last year, after two pharmaceutical companies including Danas Pharmaceutical Limited and Berlex Lab International were accused of obtaining export quotas for the drug in collusion with the health ministry officials that exceeded the limits fixed by the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB).
The INCB had fixed an annual quota of 22,000kg of ephedrine for Pakistan for 2010-11, but the ministry of health following its devolution allocated a quota of around 31,000kg of the drug.
Later, ANF’s investigation had allegedly established a direct link between Ali Musa Gilani and the multi-billion drug scandal.
