Only those engaged in maintaining government security and that of other important establishments will remain outside the purview of the order

The Election Commission on Thursday instructed the authorities concerned to collect licensed firearms within December 24, ahead of the 11th national election.

Election commission Joint Secretary Farhad Ahmed Khan sent a letter with the instruction to the Public Safety Department of the Home Ministry in this regard.

"Only those involved in maintaining security of the government and other important establishments will remain outside the purview of the order. All firearms must be deposited to the police stations or treasuries concerned," the letter read.

Copies of the letter have been sent to the departments concerned, including the Cabinet Division.
