LHC blocks move to release Raymond Davis

The Lahore High Court (LHC) has ordered the authorities not to release Raymond Davis, a US national, who killed two men in Lahore last week.

The Court also ordered the government to place the name of Raymond Davis on the “exit control list” to prevent him from leaving Pakistan.

An order is issued to put his name on the ECL (exit control list). The case is adjourned for 15 days.

The United States on Monday again called for the release of Raymond Davis, who was arrested after killing two Pakistani motorcyclists in broad daylight in Lahore, saying that he acted in legitimate self-defence.

Davis is in custody while police investigate the shooting. He has been charged with the murder of the two men.
