Karachi

 
August 8, 2017

Sindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Khan Siyal on Monday announced a three-member committee to assess performances of all Station House Officers (SHOs) in the city and sought a report within three months.  

Members of the committee include Additional Inspector General (AIG) Karachi, AIG Traffic and a senior representative of the Citizens Police-Liaison Committee (CPLC).

The committee was declared at a meeting held by the interior minister to review the overall police conduct. Besides AIG Karachi Ghulam Qadir Thebo, AIG Traffic Mushtaq Mahar, SDPOs, DSPs as well as other senior representatives of the police force and CPLC also attended the meeting.  

The provincial home minister stated that departmental action on negligence of assigned duties will be taken against SHOs in accordance with the quarterly report submitted to him.

While reviewing recent police activities, Siyal suspended and ordered for a departmental action to be taken against SDPOs of Sharea Faisal and Pak Colony over complaints of irresponsibility.

He called upon the police officers to perform their duties in accordance with the responsibilities they have been trusted with. "Those found to be slacking in their duties will not be dealt with leniently," he asserted.

After the meeting, policemen who had performed well were rewarded in accordance with the recommendations of the performance evaluation committee. Two citizens, Shaikh Raghib Fateh and his brother, were awarded Rs50,000 for assisting in foiling a robbery bid in Bahadurabad.

SHO Mochko and his team were given Rs50,000 for confiscating 900,000 litres of smuggled Irani oil, whereas the police team that solved last week’s bank robbery case within a day were awarded Rs200,000.

Reviewing the metropolis’ traffic issues, Siyal directed the local police to extend all possible support to the traffic police cops and provide security to unarmed traffic police personnel.

Responding to a question during a presser held following the meeting, the home minister lauded the overall services of police for ensuring maintenance of city’s law and order situation. He also paid homage to martyred police personnel, observing that their sacrifices will always be remembered.
