Former ISI director general Asad Durrani has challenged his name being put on the Exit Control List (ECL) for authoring a controversial book.

Durrani requested the Islamabad High Court to remove his name from the ECL. The interior ministry issued a notification earlier placing his name on the ECL.

He co-authored a controversial book, The Spy Chronicles: ISI, RAW and the Illusion of Peace, with ex-RAW chief AS Dulat.  

During the hearing, Durrani said that putting his name on the ECL because of an inquiry is unjust. “Imposing travel restrictions are a serious violation of the basic rights enshrined in Pakistan’s law.”

The petitioner has requested the court to declare the notification null and void.

In the petition, the interior ministry, defence ministry and ECL section officer have been named as respondents.

The book explores sensitive topics ranging from Hafiz Saeed to the Mumbai attacks and even the Abbottabad operation. The book also focuses on the operations conducted by ISI and RAW.
