SC rejects Rao Anwar plea seeking removal of name from ECL
Islamabad: The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a plea filed by Rao Anwar, the prime accused in the Naqeebullah Mehsud murder case, seeking removal of name from Exit Control List (ECL).

According to details, a three-judge bench of apex court headed by  Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar was hearing the plea filed by the former SSP of Karachi's  Malir district who is accused of killing hundreds of people in fake encounters.

The former SSP had sought removal of his name from the ECL  to perform Umrah in Sauid Arabia and meet his family.

Dismissing the petition, Chief Justice Nisar said Rao Anwar’s passport should be confiscated.

The chief justice told the lawyer who represented the former SSP to ask his family to meet him in Pakistan.

The suspect wants to transfer looted money to the foreign bank account, CJP remarked.

The officer was taken into custody days after being accused of killing Waziristan native Naqeebullah Mehsud in a fake encounter.
