Over three hundred tablets given to the Khyber Pakhtunkha department for data collection have gone missing, presumably through theft.

The tablets had been used in the digital census as well as the general election. The devices went missing from the District Education Office in Peshawar.

The DEP has ordered an inquiry into the matter and a three-member committee has been constituted to investigate the affair and submit a report.

The report will be submitted in one week.

The previous census was billed as the first digital one in Pakistan’s history. Tablets had been issued to census workers who went door to door to collect data.

The digital devices were intended to speed up the process of data colelction and organisation as well as making the whole process alot more smoother.

The census also became the basis for the delimiations that were used in the general elections of 2024.
