The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has been given control of modern facial recognition cameras installed at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport.
At the Karachi airport, the aviation authorities established a control room for round-the-clock monitoring of passengers and visitors using an innovative video system. The FIA immigration officers received control of the room.
In order to stop the accused from leaving the nation, new cameras with alarm systems will be activated after seeing them at the airport.
It was previously claimed that despite spending a year in installation, the modern cameras meant to identify suspects and wanted people at international airports, including Karachi, have not yet been made operational.

Due to conflicts of concerned institutions, the modern security cameras at airports have not been made functional after spending a year.
Modern security cameras at airports still non-functional
However, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has not yet given any organization a camera monitoring room.
High-resolution cameras were installed at the airports in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, and Multan with the assistance of Japan to capture photographs of each individual entering the terminal building. Authorities will be able to identify 60% of blurry photos thanks to modern cameras.
The replacement of faulty cameras would cost $3,000 within the period of three years after its activation.
