The list of people put on the ECL also includes Asad Umar, Asad Qaisar, Qasim Suri, Murad Saeed, Sheikh Rasheed, Ali Muhammad Khan and Shaheryar Afridi among others.

On the other hand, police sources said that the arrests of 27 people from the twin cities who were responsible for providing financing the PTI could also be arrested soon.
