ISLAMABAD: A Rawalpindi court ordered authorities to freeze the bank accounts and assets of the wife and a son of former prime minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, a federal minister and a senior bureaucrat while hearing the ephedrine import scandal case on Tuesday.

They included Fauzia Gilani, Musa Gilani, Makhdoom Shahabuddin and Khushnood Akhtar Lashari respectively.

When the ephedrine import quota in question was sanctioned, Shahabuddin was federal minister for health while he presently holds the cabinet portfolio of textile industry.

At the time, Lashari was the federal health secretary and Principal Secretary to former prime minister Gilani. The bureaucrat is in Britain for the past several months for treatment.

The court ordered that the sources of income of these accused should be ascertained and submitted to it by Feb.12 for further action.

It issued this order on an application of the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF), which is investigating the case.

The ANF argued that by probing the sources of income of these accused it would be able to know how much money they pocketed in the ephedrine import quota scandal.

Last month, court has accepted the application for bail of those arrested in Ephedrine excess quota case and has ordered their release in case they submit surety-bonds worth a million rupees.
