IHC seeks MoD comments


Staff Reporter


The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday sought comments from Ministry of Defense (NoD) in a petition seeking to remove the name of Lt. Gen (reted) Asad Durrani from the exit control list (ECL). The court remarked that the ministry had already stopped the pension and incentives of Durrani as punishment then why it still wanted his name on ECL. Justice Mohsin Akhter Kiyani of IHC conducted hearing on petition filed by Asad Durrani seeking travel permission. His name was placed on ECL on writing a controversial book and an inquiry was initiated against him. At the outset of hearing, Additional Attorney General (AAG) Tariq Khokher adopted the stance that he would apprise the court regarding the matter after taking instructions from federation.
