The Interior ministry called for conducting a survey on the Afghan refugees and other illegal immigrants living in the slums around Islamabad.
The direction to conduct a survey was passed during a meeting chaired by Interior Minister Rehman Malik. An action in this regard will be taken once the survey is complete.
The meeting decided to tighten security on all check points and entry points of Islamabad, while the ministry also directed the capital police to keep an eye on suspects.
In another meeting, the interior minister and Federal Law Minister Mola Baksh Chandio reviewed rules and regulations of Capital Development Authority regarding security in urban areas of Islamabad.
Pakistani security personnel have rounded up around 4,000 illegal immigrants over the couple of years who had no relevant travel documents and intended to cross the border.
