LAHORE: Two members of the Sharif family, Yousaf Abbas Sharif and Abdul Aziz, were stopped from flying abroad by immigration. Both were facing investigations into the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and were placed on the watch list. The moment that the nation was awaiting the results over no-confidence motion against chairperson Senate, the duo were trying to leave the country on a Hajj visa through a private airplane. However, they were spotted by the immigration officials at Allama Iqbal International Airport. Following the development, NAB has decided to write to the interior ministry to place their name on the Exit Control List (ECL).
