KARACHI: The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) has decided to use modern technology to regulate its Fourth Schedule system.

The new system will help the department to curb terrorism and crimes, sources said.

According to the CTD sources, under the new system, the record of fingerprints and other samples of the people enlisted in the Fourth Schedule will be maintained. The department will install the bio-metric machines at its offices and will get bio-metric attendance of the people enlisted in the Fourth Schedule, department sources said.

The department will launch legal action against the people who will be found absent from their places.
