PESHAWAR: The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s (K-P) acting police chief has directed the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) to reorganise fourth schedule listings.

The fourth schedule – a section of the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA) – restricts movement of a person placed on the list from the place of his permanent residence without seeking prior permission from police.

K-P Inspector General of Police (IGP) Akhtar Ali Shah gave these directives on Friday while presiding over a meeting of additional IGPs and regional police officers (RPOs) at the Central Police Office.

Shah also ordered officials to make security plans in each district with the help of elected local government representatives.

The high-level meeting reviewed the security and law and order situation in the province, and the progress made in setting up the safe city project and a forensic laboratory.
