The Sindh High Court (SHC) has sought a response from the federal government in a plea of Pakistan Peoples’ Party leader Nisar Khuhro, seeking removal of his name from the Exit Control List (ECL).
At the outset of the hearing, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials submitted their response and sought more time to submit the response in the plea.The SHC, after giving three weeks to the federal government to respond to the matter, adjourned the further hearing of the case.
According to NAB, Khuhro, who served previously as Sindh food minister, is facing a NAB inquiry regarding alleged irregularities in wheat procurement.

“The federal govt has placed my name in the ECL on malicious grounds,” Khuhro said, pleading the court to remove his name from the no-fly list.
