Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Operations Dr Haider Ashraf said that a strict crackdown must be initiated to arrest proclaimed offenders in the jurisdiction of all the police stations of the city and a comprehensive plan must be crafted to curb the menace of crime.
He was speaking in his office on Friday while reviewing the situation of crime in the month of February in the Iqbal Town and Model Town division. On the occasion, SP Iqbal Town Dr Muhammad Iqbal, SP Model Town Capt ® Mustansir Feroze, all the circle officers and SHOs were present.
A rigorous red-plan must be prepared to arrest the proclaimed offenders and the security of banks, jewelry shops and educational institutions would not be compromised, he said. He instructed the police officials to document the cases of old enmities and ensure the routine patrolling of police on important roads.
