Zulfi Bukhari’s name placed on ECL on NAB’s request: Sources



Islamabad, August 8 (TNS): Zulfi Bukhari who is the close aide of the Prime Minister in waiting, Imran Khan, is now in hot waters, as his name has been placed on Exit Control List (ECL) on National Accountability Bureau’s request on Wednesday, sources said.

NAB’s Rawalpindi office has been probing Zulfi Bukhari in offshore companies’ case.

The London-based businessman faced a similar situation on June 11 when he was barred from leaving the country, albeit that he went to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah with Imran Khan.

Zulfi Bukhari played a role of a catalyst in NA-53 and conducted a very successful election campaign there due to which Imran Khan emerged victorious against Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
