ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistn on Monday suspended the Sindh High Court's earlier decision to strike off former military dictator Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf's name from the Exit Control List, DawnNews reported.

A five-judge larger bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Nasirul Mulk, accepted the government’s plea challenging the SHC's ruling which ordered the removal of Pervez Musharraf's name from the ECL.

While issuing its order the SHC had said the operation of its judgment was suspended for 15 days enabling the federation to file an appeal in the Supreme Court.
