Internet Crime Control Units to be set up at police stations: Sana


February 15, 2018

LAHORE: Punjab Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Rana Sana Ullah Khan has said that the Talash Alert System (TAS) prepared for the protection of the children will be linked up with information technology.

The App of TAS will be built for mobiles and recognised by PTA. In this connection, the boundary mapping of all the police stations of the province has been completed. A foolproof mechanism will also be introduced to stop irresponsible use of the App and fake alerts.

The police officer concerned will be duty bound to certify the received alerts within specified period. Internet Crime Control Units will also be established in police stations on the lines of Cyber Crime Wing in FIA. He was presiding over a meeting regarding safeguarding children at Civil Secretariat on Wednesday. Child Protection Welfare Bureau Chairperson Saba Sadiq was also present. He maintained that the location of the message received in TAS would be traceable.

He said the TAS could be open through web as well. He said that after complete scrutiny by the police the alert would be sent to the public. Three sub-committees presented their suggestions before the Chair regarding safeguarding children. Rana Sana Ullah said that the Punjab government was trying its best to safeguard children in the light of the chief minister's vision. Besides the government, protecting children is also responsibility of society as a whole, he added. Rana Sana Ullah directed the participants in the meeting to keep in mind the human attitudes and surrounding circumstances while preparing suggestions. He was informed that 0.6 million booklets named “Mehfooz Bachay-Mazboot Pakistan” had been distributed throughout the province, including 70,000 in mosques. Rana Sana Ullah Khan said that legislation for the regulation of investigative reporting would also be made.
