PM Mulk seeks report from Interior Ministry over removal of Zulfi Bukhari’s name from ECL

Caretaker Prime Minister Justice (retd) Nasir ul Mulk on Wednesday sought a report from the Interior Ministry over the removal of the name of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan’s close friend Zulfi Bukhari from the Exit Control List (ECL).
The caretaker premier’s notice came two days after the London-based businessman was granted one-time permission by the Interior Ministry to perform Umrah and return in six days despite his name being on the ECL.
On Monday, Bukhari was stopped from flying to Saudi Arabia along with Imran Khan.
However, a few hours later following the Interior Ministry’s notification, Bukhari along with Imran and his wife, Bushra Maneka, departed for Saudi via a charter flight from Nur Khan airbase.
