It was also said by the ministry of interior that all those who are in the process of inquiry try to leave Pakistan will also have their name on the ECL.Earlier it was told that name of the journalist Cyril Almeida will be removed from the ECL as his name was put on the list without the approval of the Prime Minster Nawaz Sharif.
