Bags filled with tons of CNICs found dumped in nullah of Lahore’s NA-125
LAHORE: Three bags containing hundreds of Computerized National Identity Cards (CNICs) were found dumped in a nullah of Shafiqabad, an area that comes under the pivotal constituency of Lahore NA-125.
According to details, children, who were playing nearby, informed their families about three suspicious bags.
The police were then reported about the incident by locals and took the bags into their custody. Initially, it was believed by the police officials that dumping dozens of CNICs as such is an attempt to halt voters from casting votes.
However, all CNICs were later verified by National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) and found to be expired before 2010. NADRA officials further told that these CNICs have been revoked and new CNICs have been issued in their place.
The candidates vying for NA-125 seat are: Yasmeen Rashid (PTI), Wahim Alam Khan (PMLN), Zubair Kardar (PPP), Hafiz Salman Butt (MMA), Memona Hamid (TLP)
