Medicine-laden truck seized in Gujranwala
GUJRANWALA, July 21: A health department team on Saturday seized a medicine-laden truck parked on a goods transport company’s premises and sent samples of medicines to a Lahore laboratory for analysis, says a health official.
Executive District Officer for Health Dr Azhar Masood Bhatti said the truck had been parked on Pak Ameen Goods Transport Company’s premises in Lahori Gate for the last four months and the company owner informed him about it.
He said the seized medicines were stamped with Lahore General Hospital and District Government, Gujranwala. He said all records of medicines had been taken into custody.
CONVICTED: A court on Saturday sentenced a man to 22 years in prison and declared his wife and son absconders for deceiving courts.
Muhammad Abbas got registered a case against Arif, Ramzan, Dastgir, Rana Saeed and Muhammad Saeed, accusing them of kidnapping his son Almas Ahmad in 2008. He moved the Supreme Court, pleading that Kamoki’s City police were not recovering his son. The court ordered the SHO to arrest the accused and recover the boy.
The accused told the police that Abbas hid his son to implicate them in the case and occupy their house. When the house was transferred to his name temporarily, Abbas found his ‘kidnapped son’ within two hours and produced him before the police.
When police informed the Supreme Court of this ‘drama’ staged by Abbas, the court ordered registration of a case against him, his wife Surraya and son Almas. Police later submitted the charge sheet against them in the court of judicial magistrate Raja Shafqat.
