KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) has ordered for removal of model Ayyan Ali’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL) besides allowing her to go abroad.

The SHC issued the verdict on a petition filed by Ayyan in December 2015 seeking removal of her name from the ECL.

The model had taken the plea that placement of her name on the ECL was illegal after the authorities have returned her passport. She contended that she wanted to go abroad in connection with her medical treatment and professional activities. As she is on bail therefore, her name should be removed from the ECL.

She had also that her business agreements outside the country were being affected adversely. Preventing her from going abroad was in breach of fundamental rights.
