IHC rejects petition to put Musharraf’s name on ECL


ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) rejected a petition seeking to put the name of former president Pervez Musharraf on the Exit Control List (ECL), media reports Friday.

The petition was submitted by the son of slain Lal Masjid cleric, Maulana Abdur Rashid Ghazi.

The police has incorporated Musharraf’s statement in the case record. SSP Dr. Rizwan and SHO Aabpara Police Station Qasim Niazi yesterday questioned him at his Chak Shehzad sub jail.
