“Govt should take action against alleged hiring of Indians at QICT”

LAHORE: Senior physician and executive member of Pakistan family physicians association of Pakistan, Dr Abdul Qadoos Khokhar has said that during this time of worst ties between Pakistan and India, where the latter is threatening the former on daily basis, alleged working of Indian citizens in Pakistan at sensitive and strategic places is dangerous and it is a security risk as well.

While talking to Customs Today, Dr Abdul Qadoos Khokhar said that he will raise voice on every platform and will start a campaign against alleged appointment of Indian citizens at QICT from his platform of family physicians and Pakistan medical association. It is pertinent to mention that Dr Abdul Qadoos Khokhar is elected as executive member of family physician association and executive member of Pakistan medical association.

Dr Abdul Qadoos Khokhar said that Indians are allegedly working unlawfully at Qasim International Container Terminal (QICT) without the issuance of No Objection Certificate (NOC) by the Ministry of Interior (MOI) which might be a national security risk. He said that he will move the court against their presence at such a sensitive place of Pakistan.

He said that law enforcement agencies must hold the license of M/s QICT due to its operations without clearance of MOI. He said DP World Group owned almost 75% shares of M/s QICT and appointed Indian officials at key posts at DP World Karachi who are operating Pakistan strategic ports, posing threat to national security of Pakistan.

He said in order to secure national security, the government should ensure proper clearance by Ministry of Information because these Indian nationals could get information like in and out movement at the port which could be made possible only if people like Rizwan Sultanali Soomar, chairman and director of M/s DP World Karachi and Devang Mankodi a Director at DP World Karachi, are allowed to control Pakistani ports.
