Police have requested permission from the High Court to place electronic tags (MoniCon) on nine people.
The Police Media Officer refused to give any details, but said the request was made on Tuesday.
While police earlier requested the home minister to issue tags on 16 people, permission was granted for only nine.
The MoniCon (Monitoring and Control) order was first issued in March of 2016, with Umar Naseer as the home minister.
The tags were placed on twenty people, which were closely monitored during that time. But issuing tags have been held off since Minister Naseer resigned.
With a spike in violent crime, 26 lives have been lost in brutal assault cases in the last three years.
