The Punjab home department issued a notification yesterday giving powers to the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of police to keep an eye on the suspected terrorists and their facilitators placed under the Fourth Schedule.

As per the notification, the CTD will look into all the matters pertaining to the Fourth Schedule of the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA).
There are some 1,600 terror suspects on the list of the Fourth Schedule in Punjab. The Fourth Schedule lists contain names of all known suspects belonging to banned militant or sectarian organizations, who by their disposition could pose a threat to public peace and security.
Such suspects have to submit an affidavit to the government, pledging they would no more be associated with any banned organization in future or engage in any criminal activity.
Earlier, Punjab government, on the recommendation of law enforcement agencies, planned to install electronic surveillance chips on the ankles of the fourth schedulers in the province to monitor their movement.
Under the law, a fourth scheduler cannot leave a specific area without informing the authorities concerned. Such suspects have also to report to the authorities concerned in an area the visit and in case of failing to do so, they can be taken into custody.
A senior police officer on condition of anonymity said the plan of installing electronic devices to monitor the fourth schedulers was dropped.
“The high cost of these devices could have burdened the national exchequer,” he said.
