Pakistan government has prepared two 'red' books containing information about the country's most wanted terrorists and human traffickers, including those carrying rewards on their heads.
The books have been compiled by the Federal Investigation Agency's (FIA) special investigation group (SIG) and are based on information provided by the federal and provincial intelligence agencies and police, FIA's Deputy Director General Tariq Khosa said.
The books would be launched formally on July 1, Khosa was quoted as saying by Dawn today.
Following their launch, the books would be sent to all provincial governments and law enforcement agencies so that the wanted people could be arrested.
The red books had information about 80 terrorists against whom the government had already announced head money.
The documents have great significance as they have been drafted after seeking consensus of all intelligence and law-enforcement agencies.
People who have their names in the red books have already been placed on the Exit Control List. They have also been declared absconders by the relevant courts.
One of the books contained the list which included those involved in bomb attacks, destruction of national assets, suicide attacks, major murders and robberies, Khosa said.
The other book had the list of people involved in major human trafficking cases, including those associated with camel jockeys' network and travel agents.
Khosa said the two books contained names of only Pakistani terrorists and human traffickers.
