ATC directs Interior Ministry, FIA to remove Amir's name from Exit Control List

KARACHI – An anti-terrorism court on Monday allowed Muttahida Qaumi Movement leader Amir Khan to leave the country for Hajj.

The ATC was hearing an application of Amir Khan and later directed the Interior Ministry and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to remove his name from the Exit Control List allowing him to perform Hajj. Besides, the court has directed Amir Khan to submit surety bonds worth two million rupees.

On June 30, Amir was released on bail in a case registered against him for allegedly providing shelter to 26 wanted suspects arrested by Rangers during a raid on and around MQM's Nine Zero headquarters in Azizabad on March 11.

Aamir Khan was also among those detainees in the raid in a case pertaining to instigating terrorism and harbouring criminals.
