ISLAMABAD - Religious Protesters on Thursday agreed to end their protests against the Supreme Court verdict.

SC had overturned the death sentence of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman who was convicted for blasphemy in 2010.

Two conditions were set by the protesters, including a review petition and placing her name on ECL.

Protesters had decided to file a review petition. Authorities have decided to place Asia Bibi’s name on the Exit Control List (ECL), they added.

Prime Minister Imran Khan earlier constituted a committee to negotiate with the agigators.

The committee - which includes Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and State Minsiter for Interior Shehryar Afridi - has been tasked to devise strategies in the wake of any untoward incident in the country.
