LAHORE (92 News) – A two-member bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) has adjourned the plea seeking removal of the name of former premier Nawaz Sharif from the Exit Control List (ECL) unconditionally till Friday (tomorrow).

He said that Mian Nawaz Sharif is seriously ill and his platelets go down suddenly. “It is mandatory for Nawaz Sharif to go abroad for diagnosis of his disease. He should be allowed to go abroad on humanitarian grounds,” he said. He demanded that Nawaz Sharif’s name should be removed from the ECL. The court adjourned the case till tomorrow.
