Lahore (Staff Report/Agencies): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday withdrew his contempt of court petition filed in the Lahore High Court (LHC), seeking implemented of its order regarding the permission to go abroad for one-time for medical treatment.

Earlier this month, LHC’s Justice Syed Ali Baqar Najafi had ordered to remove the name of Shehbaz Sharif from the no-fly list and allowed him to go abroad.

During the last proceedings of the court on Wednesday, Justice Najafi sought details from the federal government by May 26 to know under what circumstances the LHC's decision was not implemented.

On the other hand, the federal government challenged the decision in Supreme Court. During a press conference, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed had also announced that the name of Shehbaz Sharif had been placed in Exit Control List (ECL).
