NADRA blocks 10K Pakistanis CNIC’s who registered as Afghan refugees

ISLAMABAD: On Tuesday National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) blocked 10,144 Pakistanis (CNICs) Computerised National Identity Cards who registered themselves as Afghan refugees. 

“NADRA tracked cases of fake identities through its system. When those who registered themselves as Afghan refugees came to obtain their CNICs, NADRA officials took action by blocking their national identity cards”, sources said.

Under a voluntary repatriation scheme of the UN High Commission for Refugees, refugees are entitled to $400 to return to their homeland.

NADRA officials said a few of those whose CNICs had been blocked had moved different courts.
