KARACHI:


The Sindh government will launch a biometric system for the police next month, under which criminals from all over Karachi will be documented by collecting their fingerprints, photographs and personal and crime histories at the Criminal Record Office of Crime Investigation Agency.


This was announced at a meeting chaired by chief secretary Muhammad Siddique Memon, which reviewed the installation of the Biometric Verification System and reverse-osmosis plants.


"The biometric system will be launched in June that will be introduced and enforced throughout the province," said CIA DIG Sultan Khawaja while briefing the meeting.


Memon showed concern over non-provision of water through reverse-osmosis plants that were installed at Keamari and Lyari a few years ago. He demanded a report over the issue from the local government secretary within a week and ordered the immediate restoration of the plants.
