The IGP also presided over official meetings in both the districts and reviewed the crime and Law and Order situation. The Provincial Police Chief also addressed Police Darbars and Media Representatives in Jhang and Bhakkar.
Mohammad Habib-ur-Rehman said that religious leaders and media should come forward to play their role in creating religious harmony among various sects because the people of Pakistan, security forces and Police are united to eradicate the scourge of terrorism.
Addressing Police Officers/Officials, the IGP said that state of the art reporting rooms with online system are being established in the Police Stations all over the Province in order to change Thana Culture and to ensure timely justice. The online system would help ensure prompt registration of cases and action on the registered complaints.
