ISLAMABAD – The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the National Assembly has directed the federal capital police to launch a crackdown on beggars, fearing that terrorists could enter the Red Zone in the guise of beggars.
The committee expressed this concern in a meeting chaired by PAC chairman Noor Alam Khan on Tuesday. Inspector General of Police Islamabad Akbar Nasir Khan attended the meeting.
The PAC directed the Islamabad police chief to collect data on unauthorized personnel entering sensitive areas of the capital.
In this case, Noor Alam Khan directed the police chief to review the security arrangements for the MNAs Hostel and Parliament Lodges and ordered the removal of a parking lot outside a five-star hotel in Islamabad because it posed a security threat.
The PAC also issued instructions to the police not to stop traffic for VVIP traffic.
The committee considered the audit report of Pakistan Railways for the year 2019-20. It recommended that the land given to AKD Securities on lease be repossessed by terminating the agreement because the company had not paid dues for 18 years.
