Rawalpindi: The Punjab government has sought details of all Afghans students studying in schools across the province, including Rawalpindi.

Punjab Secretary Schools Abdul Jabbar Shaheen has issued orders to District Executive Officers (DEO) of all 36 districts, including Rawalpindi to collect details of Afghan children studying in different schools of their respective districts.

The step has been taken to streamline register Afghan families and children given the precarious security situation in the country. Some Afghan children were recently found involved in saboteur acts in different part of the country and many of the children were being lured by unscrupulous elements for terror acts.
