Federal cabinet committee has recommended that National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) should work under Prime Minister, Express News reported.

According to Express News Islamabad bureau chief Amir Ilyas Rana, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has recommended the prime minister should head the counter terrorism body, while the Chairman Joint Chief of Staff, Services Chiefs, the Director General Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) and the chief ministers of all four provinces should be the members of it.

Earlier in the meeting of cabinet committee the proposal was president, after which a sub-committee was formed to discuss the draft.

It was suggested that as all heads of security and political institution would be on one platform there would not be a need of any approval.

The final draft would be presented before Prime Minister and the federal cabinet on Tuesday.
