Chitral, June 12: A group of residents in Chitral district celebrated the the removal of former President General Musharraf by distributing sweets.

The supporters said that removal of Musharraf’s name from ECL is a victory for the former military dictator who has been facing various trials in different courts. He had requested the Sindh High Court to remove his name from the Exit Control List (ECL).

Musharraf has a strong base in Chitral. He was also considering to contest elections from Chitral for the National Assembly

It is pertinent to note that a court in Islamabad has today dismissed Musharraf’s application and ordered him to appear in the court in a case related to the murder of the Laal Majsid cleric.

The Government of Pakistan can submit appeal against the Sindh High Court’s decision in the Supreme Court within 15 days.

The main reason for Musharraf's popularity is restarting of work on the Lawari Tunnel which has been under-construction for almost three decades now. He also won hearts by establishing the district government system in the region
