Punjab government’s request for cell phone tracking system has been denied by the federal government, as Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) didn’t allow it, reported The News.
Punjab Government earlier requested federal government for the installation of cell phone tracking system to help trace out high profile kidnapping for ransom and terrorism cases and other heinous crimes.
Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah confirmed that the provincial government has repeatedly requested federal authorities to get the cell phone tracking facility but to no avail.
“We can’t do anything when the federal government is not willing to provide us with the technology.”, The News quoted Rana Sanaullah.
It always happens that when any government agency wants to have access to the record of a mobile phone in connection with any investigation or any other valid reason, it contacts the premier intelligence agency for assistance. In no time, the agency gets the data. However, it is its prerogative whether or not to share it with others.
