The federal capital will get an air security unit this week with 12 drones to provide a faultless security system to citizens, Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed said Monday.
Addressing a press conference, Rasheed said that to ensure foolproof security and control the crime rate, 1,000 additional personnel were being inducted to the Islamabad police and two locators were being purchased.
He did not elaborate further on the air security unit.
The minister said the government had decided to start a crackdown on those involved in issuing fake vaccination certificates or other illegal documents as there was a zero-tolerance policy against these elements.
He said that with the renovation of the existing Food Park, a new food park was being launched in Melody Market, while another food street will be opened at the Art and Craft Village in Shakarparian.
He said the ministry had fixed a fee of Rs10,000 for a one-day emergency passport service which would be issued within a day for those who were in need, while the ordinary fee will be Rs5,000 to Rs8,000.
