KARACHI: Given some unlawful activities of Chinese nationals in the city, the Sindh government has decided to approach the federal government to enact a law for the registration of Chinese nationals, especially those in the country for China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)-related projects, in Karachi and other districts of Sindh.

"After CPEC, a large number of Chinese have arrived in Karachi and some have been caught involved in illegal activities red-handed by the police. Since we have no database of those who live in Sindh, the federal government must make efforts to develop data of all Chinese nationals arrived by road, air or sea," the law minister said.

"We have little information about Chinese companies working in Sindh and do not know who comes in the province individually," he said, adding that each and every Chinese national living in Sindh must register themselves at their concerned police station.
