ISLAMABAD: The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) on Tuesday included 11 more pharmaceutical companies in its investigation of the ephedrine quota case, DawnNews reported.

Moreover, the ANF also summoned the owners of these companies. Sources in the ANF told DawnNews that summon notices for April 25 and 26 had been sent to the companies’ owners.

Sources moreover said that a quota of 6,000 kilograms of ephedrine was granted to the companies which exceeded the legal limit.

Earlier on April 19, the ANF had submitted a report before the Supreme Court formally naming eight accused, including Prime Minister’s Yousuf Raza Gilani’s son Ali Musa Gilani, for their alleged involvement in the scam.

However, Musa Gilani has denied involvement and has said that he is being wrongly implicated.

Moreover, during repeated media interactions, Prime Minister Gilani has indirectly been warning officials against implicating his son in the case.
