A 30-year-old banker living in Bahrain for less than two years stated:

I got a call from the Muharraq Police Station two weeks ago asking me to go with my original passport and CPR for verification

I went there to find at least 30 Pakistanis waiting in queue, and one by one we were asked if the documents were original.

All Pakistanis are being summoned for this verification and I also learn that soon a no-objection-certificate will be issued after the verification.

The matter is now being escalated on social media so that relevant authorities can take urgent note of the matter and resolve it for Pakistanis living in Bahrain, legally.
