The federal government has decided to put Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill’s name on the Exit Control List (ECL). This decision was taken at the recommendation of Islamabad district administration.
The Ministry of Home Affairs will initiate the process to add his name to the ECL. Gill has been facing sedition charges for inciting mutiny within the Pakistan Army through his remarks during a TV show. On September 15, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted bail to Gill— who was arrested on August 9 under sedition charges after he urged personnel of the armed forces to mutiny against their commanders.—INP
