The government has initiated the process to freeze bank accounts and other assets of the banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP). 

According to sources, the government is blocking computerised national identity cards and passports of active members of the TLP. The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and provincial revenue departments will help the government freeze TLP’s assets anywhere and everywhere in Pakistan. 

Sources say that arms licences issued to TLP office bearers and activists are being cancelled. Action against TLP activists is being taken under the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997, the sources concluded.
