Citizen murder case: IHC seeks report to place US diplomat’s name on ECL

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday directed the police to present report pertaining placing the name of US diplomat on Exit Control List (ECL).
22-year-old Ateeq Baig was killed and another person was injured when the US military attaché Col Joseph Emanuel Hall allegedly ran a red light and hit his motorcycle last week.
In his remarks, the judge expressed resentment over Islamabad police over their inefficiency to handle the case.
“He would be an American in his own country. Being a diplomat does not means that he kills our citizens. You would have surely panicked without any reason,” said the judge.
