On the other hand, the law enforcement agencies have beefed up security in Karachi after the attack on the June 29 attack on the Pakistan Stock Exchange.
Earlier, Supreme Court suspended Peshawar High Court order for release of 196 terrorists.
Justice Mushir Alam-headed three-member bench of Supreme Court of Pakistan heard the case in Islamabad on Tuesday.
The court sought record of the cases of these 196 alleged terrorists from the federal government.
Furthermore, the SC also issued notices to all the parties, including the federal government.
Earlier, military courts had sentenced these 196 people for their involvement in terrorism.
But the Peshawar High Court had ordered for their release.
Earlier this month, the PHC overturned the convictions of 196 individuals whom military courts had convicted.
However, the apex court directed the federal government to furnish complete details of the persons whom the High Court released.
During the hearing, Justice Qazi Ameen said that the alleged terrorists were sentenced by the military courts after conducting a trial. He said each case has different evidence and facts.
