KARACHI: Inspector-General Police (IGP) Sindh Ghulam Nabi Memon on Tuesday chaired a high-level meeting and reviewed the security situation in the province.

The meeting was held in wake of the blast in a mosque in Peshawar which claimed the lives of over a hundred people. The proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) accepted responsibility and warned of further attacks in the country.

In this regard, IG Sindh chaired a meeting and reviewed the overall security measures in the province. During the meeting, it was decided to tighten security at all mosques, imambargahs, shrines, minority places of worship/religious places, and other public places.

IG Sindh instructed on continuous monitoring of and enhancing the security of government/semi-government buildings/offices, cantonment areas, and other sensitive installations.

The police chief also instructed on arranging safety measures in schools, colleges, universities, business centres, and the stock exchange on the recommendation of its administrators.

He said that patrolling, snap-checking and picketing should be conducted around airports, railway stations, bus terminals, truck depots, and freight agencies.

IG Sindh said necessary measures should be taken to keep all CCTV cameras installed in cities completely active and in the good condition.

He also instructed on strengthening contacts and coordination with Sindh Rangers, FC and other law enforcement institutions and agencies.

He said surveillance at entry and exit points of all districts, including the tri-junction border of Sindh, should be made more stringent and a close eye should be kept on suspected persons and vehicles. He said the Talash app device should be used during patrolling, snap-checking, and raids.

The public has been advised to report any suspicious activity, packet, parcel, bag, or vehicle to Madadgar 15 or the nearest police station.

Senior police officers associated with operations, special branch and CTD participated in the meeting through video link.
