Chinese experts, investors given foolproof security: IGP

LAHORE: Inspector General of Police Punjab Inam Ghani has said that foolproof security is being provided to Chinese experts working on CPEC projects, Chinese investors and ordinary citizens.

In this regard, all the supervisory officers should review the security arrangements of CPEC projects or other installations in their districts and if there is room for improvement in the security arrangements it should be ensured on priority basis.

He said that fresh security audit of all CPEC, non-CPEC and private projects of Chinese citizens across the province should be done. IGP said that all private security companies that provide security guards or other staff to Chinese citizens should also be subjected to a fresh security audit. He added that CTD, Special Branch and local police should conduct search, sweep and combing operations in the vicinity of Chinese nationals' residences, offices and projects.

He said there should be no delay in departmental and legal action against those responsible for deaths, torture and escape in police custody while Additional IG Investigation should brief on the cases registered against police personnel and their progress after Eid. He issued these instructions while presiding over a video link conference Monday while giving instructions to all RPOs, CPOs and DPOs of the province.

The IG issued orders to cancel the leave of all officers and personnel posted in the field formations of Punjab Police on Eid to protect the lives and property of the citizens and maintain peace.
