CRACK DOWN AGAINST UNAUTHORISED SECURITY COMPANIES: The Punjab Interior Department will launch a crackdown against security guard-providing companies which are not authorised by the agencies.
A report said that many unauthorised security guards deployed in several government and semi-government departments and banks, might be the cause of bank robberies and terrorist attacks. According to the details, more than 300 security agencies collectively deploying 70,000 security guards were performing their duties across the city.
According to the rules, no security guard would be appointed without being identified by the special branch.
The Home department gave orders to the special branch to identify the security guards, the report said.
According to the agencies, many security guards appointed in banks and other departments lacked proper identification which could be the reason behind several ‘big incidents’.
The agencies reported to the Home department that the Mustang, Askari, Fenix, Shahzad and 26 other security companies had deployed many security guards in different departments without proper identification. The Home department had resultantly issued warning letters between May 1 and September 2 to these companies to verify their employees.
