Apex Committee reviews NAP implementation in KP
Presiding a meeting of the Provincial Apex Committee at Governor House here, he said the nation stood shoulder to shoulder with the security forces to root out the menace of terrorism.
Chief Minister Pervez Khattak, Corps Commander Peshawar Lt General Hidayat Khan, Chief Secretary KPK Amjad Ali Khan and IG Police Nasir Durrani were also present on the occasion.
The meeting reviewed NAP’s implementation and steps taken under it to extract every possible benefit against terrorism in KP and FATA.
The forum decided to get illegal and unverified mobile SIM cards blocked to prevent kidnappings for ransom and other heinous crimes. It also assessed steps taken to curb practices of hundi and hawala – illegal transactions of money.
The committee directed to expedite the return of internally displaced persons (IDPs).
The civil-military leadership unanimously formulated NAP in January 2015 to crack down on terrorism and to supplement the ongoing anti-terrorist offensive in north-western Pakistan. It is considered as a major coordinated state retaliation following the deadly Peshawar school attack.
The plan received unprecedented levels of support and cooperation from across the country.
