Islamabad: Over thousand arms licences cancelled
ISLAMABAD: The Public Accounts Committee on Monday directed the Interior Ministry to submit a report of cancellation of arms licences, which were issued on fake signatures of parliamentarians, to the committee within three months.
Interior Secretary Qamar Zaman Chaudhry informed the committee that the ministry had dug out 1,014 arms licences applications on fake signatures of parliamentarians.
After this case, he said the ministry imposed a complete ban on issuing new licences.
All licences, which might be issued in the future, would be sent to NADRA for proper verification to make the system more secure.
