CPEC Chinese Nationals to receive Highest Protocol
KARACHI: Around 1,000 police personnel, including 500 elite police commandos, will be deputed to provide security to the Chinese nationals expected to visit Sindh for the Pak-China Economic Corridor megaprojects.
This was decided at a meeting chaired by the IGP Sindh, Ghulam Hyder Jamali. Rapid response force DIG Dr Amin Yusufzai, who was nominated as focal person for this project, gave a presentation to the participants.
He said that the Sindh IG had already ordered 500 police commandos to be placed at his disposal for the security of the Chinese nationals in the province.
He also submitted a draft of the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for their security.
Jamali directed the immediate establishment of a dedicated provincial foreigners’ security cell at the Central Police Office and district foreigners’ security cells in each district of Sindh, to ensure security for the 1,600 Chinese nationals already working on 125 different projects in the province.
He directed the Sindh reserve police DIG to immediately place 500 more police personnel at Yusufzai’s disposal, which would raise the total strength to 1,000.
It was decided to appoint at least 2,000 retired armed forces personnel on contract basis to make up for the manpower shortage, for which a summary will be submitted to the government soon.
