MANSEHRA: The district police will launch a crackdown against Afghan refugees involved in crime. The decision was taken at the monthly crime meeting of the Police Department held here on Monday. Senior Superintendent of Police (Investigation) Khalid Khan Tanoli, who chaired the meeting, asked the police officers to provide foolproof security to the foreigners and non-governmental organisations carrying out development projects and social work.
The police officer noted that timber smuggling was on the rise in the district and illegal saw machines were the main cause behind it. He said every police station should constitute a team to take action against the timber smugglers and outlaws involved in crime and staying at the Afghan refugee camps.
