This case cannot be put to rest. How can federal ministers past or present, or the sons of important people sell drugs? Some of those dangerous drugs would be sold in Pakistani legally or illegally. How could any Pakistan think of doing that? He needed a new car? He is innocent until proven guilty but never goes to court? Time for the army to take over. Methamphetamine (made from Ephedrine) has the potential to begin to destroy Pakistani family life. What kind of men want to sell addictive drugs to their own people? Go on the internet and look at the damage methamphetamine does to people (and their children). Little children are left home alone for days at a time until a court must take them away from the absent mother. I was in shock reading about these people wanting to import ephedrine for Pakistan drug companies. Companies sell these drugs and then claim the drugs were stolen from their lorry docks.

I believe the investigation agency must thoroughly investigate and come up with conclusive evidence, so that the case is laid to rest.
