The federal government has decided to crack down on members of proscribed organizations and human trafficking syndicates by canceling their travel documents, national identities cards, driving licenses and mobile SIMs and denying them permission to operate bank accounts.
This was decided in a meeting held in Islamabad on Monday with Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan in the chair. The meeting discussed measures being taken against the members of proscribed organisations, human traffickers and proclaimed offenders.
Speaking on the occasion, Chaudhry Nisar vowed to continue every effort to safeguard the rights of the citizens and ensuring security of the motherland.
“While every effort would continue towards safeguarding the rights of the citizens, we will not falter in fulfilling our commitment towards ensuring security of the motherland and to check those elements who bring bad name to the country in one way or the other,” Nisar said.
He said that contrary to the propaganda of detractors and panic peddlers, the law and order situation has witnessed marked improvement as a result of tireless efforts by law enforcement authorities.
“We, however, need to build on these gains and to double our efforts for further improving law and order situation,” Nisar said.
The interior minister directed the Inspector General of Islamabad Police to complete the audit report of all police stations of federal capital. He added that police personnel showing outstanding performance would be awarded prizes while action would be taken against personnel showing negligence in their duties.
