The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore on Saturday suggested its chairman to take steps for placing names of 23 bureaucrats believed to be close to the Sharif family on Exit Control List (ECL).

According to a NAB spokesman, the step was taken in the backdrop of alleged misuse of authority and their involvement in different corruption cases.

He said they had prepared a list of the bureaucrats [close to the Sharif family] and also sought details of their perks and privileges given to them.

The bureaucrats whose names were suggested to be placed on ECL include Primary and Secondary Health Secretary Ali Jan Khan, Quaid-i-Azam Solar Power Plant CEO Najam Shah, Paragon City Finance Director Farhan Ali and Manager Shahzad Waheed, LDA City development partners Malik Asif, Mian Tahir Javed, Abdul Rasheed Ahmed, Shahid Shafiq and Ibrahim Bhatti.
