A “suspicious” individual was detained from Pakistan Secretariat close to the Prime Minister’s House, Islamabad Police has said.

Jawwad Taqi, a spokesman for the capital city police, said in a statement that the suspect was unable to produce any identity at the time of his arrest. He said, “The suspicious guy was caught from close to the wall next to the Pak Secretariat and the Prime Minister’s House.”

The person’s medical tests, according to the spokeswoman, are being done to determine his mental health. He was captured on camera crossing the main street in front of Blocks A, B, C, and D of the Secretariat.

The Islamabad police’s Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) swiftly apprehended the man and transported him to an undisclosed location.

According to the media report, security guards stationed outside the PM House were apparently unaware of the suspect’s entry point. The suspect had been to the PM House via three different routes and claimed to be an Afghani resident, it added.

The security services have obtained the suspect’s CCTV video and are investigating how the suspect entered the PM House.
