IGP calls for chalking out more effective policing plan for current year
The provincial police chief, concerned over the continuous granting of bail to suspected terrorists and other criminals involved in heinous crimes, has decided to file a review petition for their cancellation.
Moizuddin Peerzada, the Sindh police’s spokesperson, said on Wednesday that review appeals would be filed for the cancellation of bails of suspects involved in terrorism and other high-profile cases.
The decision was made at a meeting presided over by IGP Sindh Ghulam Hyder Jamali.
The additional IG Karachi, the Karachi Range DIGs and the provincial AIG operations attended the meeting.
The IGP reviewed the investigation progress of cases being tried in courts and analysed the conviction rate.
He ordered reforming the investigation process by using modern techniques.
The IGP also went through different recommendations for ensuring a comprehensive policing plan for 2016.
He directed that the crime pattern and strategies during 2015 should be analysed so that a more effective policing plan could be chalked out.
He stressed the need for police officers to step up efforts to curb street crimes and robberies and directed that a periodical report be submitted to him in this connection.
The police chief also evaluated measures being adopted to counter sectarian violence and killings.
He ordered the revival of peace committees comprising religious leaders of all sects so police could hold regular meetings with them to address issues, if any.
