If a person is illegally detained in the police station then strict action will be taken against the concerned Station House Officer.
Regional Police Officer Bahawalpur Muhammad Idrees Ahmad said this during a visit to Model Police Station Baghdadul Jadeed the other day. On the occasion, he checked the records of the police station and inspected cleanliness arrangements.
He also inspected the armory section and directed the officials to ensure safety of the weapons. He said criminals involved in heinous crimes should be arrested soon. He further said recovered vehicles dumped at different police stations should be returned to their owners without delay.
The DPO ordered the officials concerned that list of wanted criminals along with their photos should be displayed in all police stations. Idrees Ahmad also instructed the policemen to register motorcycles and cars being used by them with the police department. He warned if any official was found using a vehicle without registration number then strict departmental action will be taken against him.
