The law enforcement authorities (LEAs) have decided to check the previous criminal records of the suspects allegedly involved in carrying out the May 9 attack on the General Headquarters of Pakistan Army following the arrest of Pakistan Tehreek-e- Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former premier Imran Khan.

More than 100 suspects have been rounded up so far whose bank accounts, sources of income, details of foreign trips, assets and other details will be collected.

The process of blocking the passports and computerised national identity cards of the fugitives has also been completed.

Police sources, engaged in the investigation of the GHQ attack case, told The Express Tribune that the case of the GHQ attack is registered in RA Bazar police station in which the main suspects, former law minister Raja Basharat and Khalid Jadoon, have not been arrested yet.

The police, with the help of other LEAs, completed the identification of the suspects from mobile footage and videos on social media.

The police, with the help of other agencies, have so far managed to apprehend 104 suspects in the case.

The processes of collecting concrete evidence against the accused and preparing challans are going on, the sources said.

The sources said it has now been decided to also check the roles of the arrested suspects in other anti-national activities.

In this regard, the process of taking fingerprints of all the accused and taking photographs from different angles has been completed, the sources added.

They said the complete record of the accused will be shared with the police of all provinces.

The crime branch of the police of the respective province along with the Punjab Police will be tasked to check previous crime data of the accused.

The sources further said that the processes of collecting foreign visits, bank account details, mobile contacts and other details of the suspects arrested in the GHQ attack have also started.

More than 100 mobile phones have been recovered from the accused so far.

The help of the Federal Investigation Authority (FIA), National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) and National Counter Terrorism Authority (NACTA) will be sought for forensic analysis of the mobiles of the accused.

The sources also claimed that details of the social media accounts of the accused have already been collected.

“The process of putting their names on the Exit Control List (ECL) has also been started to prevent the fugitives from escaping to foreign countries,” they said.
