ISLAMABAD: The name of the MD of state-owned Oil and Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) Zahid Mir has been put on the Exit Control List (ECL).

“They also inflicted huge loss to national exchequer in terms of damages to wells by usage of inferior quality material,” says the Ministry of Interior’s order a copy of which is available with The News.
