ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has asked NADRA to prepare a roadmap within 48 hours to launch a National Plan for Re-verification of Computerized National Identity Cards across the country on Wednesday.

The re-verification roadmap has been ordered after questions were raised over a Pakistani passport and CNIC found from the drone hit car wreckage site in Balochistan.

It was claimed to be documents held by a Taliban leader Mullah Mansoor.

Chairing a meeting at NADRA Headquarters in Islamabad on Wednesday, the interior Minister said a message has gone to the world that Pakistan’s CNIC can be used by anyone.

This is against our strategic, security and national interest.
