Sources said that Rana Sanaullah was arrested from the Islamabad-Lahore motorway near the Sukheki area.

Meanwhile, Maryam Nawaz also replaced her twitter profile picture with Rana Sanaullah’s photo, and wrote there that “What has ANS got to do with Rana Sanaullah? It could not get more absurd. He has been arrested for his bold & courageous stance. Jaali-e-Azam being the small & petty minded man that he is, is directly behind his arrest. Make no mistake.”
