Pakistan’s powerful spy services, Inter-Services Intelligence, just got a little stronger. Prime Minister Imran Khan has given ISI a lead role in tracking people infected with coronavirus.
“It (tracking system) was originally (meant to trace) terrorists but we’re using it to tackle corona,” Khan said during the live Ehsaas Telethon to raise funds to support the people worst hit by the pandemic. He said that “tracking and testing is the only way to reopen businesses”. The Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is Pakistan’s powerful spy agency. In 1950, it was officially given the task of safeguarding Pakistani interests and national security, inside and outside the country.
