Report  Web desk : ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Karachi president Dr Asim Hussain on Monday approached the Supreme Court seeking removal of restrictions on his travelling abroad. As per details, Dr Asim, a close aide of former president Asif Ali Zardari, petitioned the apex court through his counsel requesting it to issue directives for the concerned authorities to strike his name off the Exit Control List (ECL). Barrister Sardar Latif Khosa, the petitioner’s counsel, submitted that his client was suffering from various chronic diseases which may cost him dearly if he wasn’t allowed to undergo medical treatment abroad. Citing the federal government, interior ministry and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), the petitioner has pleaded to the court to order removal of his name from the ECL so that he could travel to London for treatment.
