Pak Punjab IG orders more security for Chinese nationals
Lahore: The Punjab Inspector General of Police of Pakistan’s Punjab province has asked all police officers to submit reports on Chinese citizens staying and working in the province and the level of security being provided to them.
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.
The intelligence report warned that six to seven al Qaeda-linked terrorists had entered Gujranwala and were likely to target foreigners, especially Chinese nationals.
The report said the terrorists had entered Gujranwala a week ago and were being provided accommodation and logistics by a local resident, identified as Tariq.
