ISLAMABABD: The government has placed the name of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ahsan Iqbal on the Exit Control List (ECL).
The Ministry of Interior has reportedly place the PML-N stalwart’s name on the no-fly list after approval from the federal cabinet.
Ahsan Iqbal is facing corruption charges in the Narowal Sports City reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed against him in November last year.
As per the NAB, the sports city project conceived on the instruction of Ahsan Iqbal without any feasibility in 1999 was initially approved at a cost of Rs34.74 million by the Central Development Working Party (CDWP) headed by Iqbak
The anti-graft watchdog claimed that Iqbal illegally directed the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) and NESPAK to increase the project’s scope, which increased the cost to Rs97.52 million and causing heavy losses to the exchequer.
