Lahore Police, Nadra sign MoU: Lahore Police has signed a biometric verification MoU with Nadra here on Tuesday. SP Crime Registration Office (CRO) Nasar Ullah Ranjha said that for the first time the biometric verification agreement has been reached. He said that this would help cover many challenges by police during detection and investigations process. He added with the fingerprints available of a suspect, the CNIC and family data of any accused can be checked. In many cases when the criminals were arrested, they either told a lie that they have not been issued a CNIC or they did not have it at the present moment. It created a lot of nuisance for police in preparation for the criminals’ records.

The biometric verification technology will help overcome this obstacle.

The Nadra centre will either be constructed in Police Lines or DIG Investigations Office.
