The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has placed names of six key aides of former prime minister Imran Khan on the “Stop-list”, barring them from travelling abroad without permission, it is learnt.
Former principal secretary to PM Azam Khan, ex-special assistant to PM on political communication Shahbaz Gill, ex-adviser to PM on interior and accountability Shahzad Akbar, Director-General Anti-Corruption Punjab Gohar Nafees, and DG Federal Investigation Agency Punjab Zone ll Mohammad Rizwan’s names have been put to the list, insiders revealed on Sunday.
PTI’s head of social media Dr Arsalan Khalid’s name has also been added to the list, they said.
The FIA had reactivated the process of ‘stop-list’ at all airports in 2015 to stop the “wanted people” to leave the country due to exhausting process of Exist Control List (ECL). The move helped the FIA to stop any person wanted in “heinous crime” from leaving the country on an emergency basis even his name is not put on the ECL.
