All provincial police officials have been directed through a circular to submit reports about Chinese citizens residing in Punjab at the earliest.
The IGP also directed police officers to beef up security of the Chinese, the Daily Times reports.
It quoted sources as saying that the decision was taken after an intelligence agency reported on April 20 that Chinese people in Punjab were under serious threat.
