ISLAMABAD: Ministry of Human Rights in collaboration with Pakistan Citizens Portal has launched “Zainab Alert App” nationwide to combat child abuse issue on war footing to address this grave problem, an official of MoHR said on Friday. Talking to media here, he said that the Zainab alert app was launched on Citizen’s portal and relevant regional and district levels for combating emergency and recovery of missing or abducted children. The basic purpose of this App is to initiate a quick response as soon as a complaint is lodged. It has connected the DPOs to the system and the complaint directly reaches to the concerned DPO. The App keeps a track of the missing child case and all the process taking place from preliminary examination to verification, registration of FIR and investigation. However, a Mobile App with same purpose and nature was already launched and working on Sindh level inside the CPLC office, he added. He said, “We always see duplication of services and notice that same nature of activities are undertaken at different places by different people”. It not only consumes time but also the efforts, he added.
