Karachi: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah in an attempt to purge the city of street criminals, has directed IG police to mobilize the SSU and Reserve police on the roads to support the district police.
“I want the city police to make it their mission to eliminate street crime”, he said. In case of failure, he directed the IG: “the concerned SSP and SHOs be transferred/removed immediately.”
Sindh Chief Minister directed the IG to deploy the police, reserve, and SSU force at the hotspots and intensify police patrolling for vigilance and keep sharing their photos, location as well as deployment plan with him.
He also instructed the IG: “to keep me informed about the actions taken against the criminals along with the number of their arrests so, that necessary instructions could be given to the prosecution department for bringing them to book.”
