Govt places Ahsan Iqbal’s name on Exit Control List

ISLAMABAD: The federal government has placed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Ahsan Iqbal on the Exit Control List (ECL).

According to the sources, the Ministry of Interior placed the Ahsan Iqbal name on the no-fly list. His name was added to the ECL after the approval of the federal cabinet.

Iqbal is currently facing the Narowal Sports City reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Last year in November, the national graft buster filed the reference against the former federal minister.

As per the NAB, the sports city project conceived on the instruction of Ahsan Iqbal without any feasibility in 1999 was initially approved for Rs34.74 million by the Central Development Working Party (CDWP), which Iqbal headed.

Iqbal illegally directed the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB) and NESPAK to increase the project’s scope, enhancing the cost to Rs97.52 million, the NAB added.
