HYDERABAD: Inspector-General of Police Allah Dino Khawaja directed Hyderabad DIG Javed Odho to stop the sale of narcotics, liquor, mainpuri and gukta in Tando Muhammad Khan district.
IG Khawaja, who belongs to Tando Muhammad Khan, expressed a lack of knowledge as to why compensation has not been made for around 50 people of the Hindu community who died after consuming toxic liquor in March, 2016.
IG Khawaja said this while talking to the media at the inaugural of a school, established by The Citizens Foundation, in Tando Muhammad Khan district on Saturday.
I want to work within my limits: Sindh IG
Expressing his desire of making the police apolitical, Khawaja said he is looking forward to legislation on the draft recommendations which he submitted to the Sindh government for police reforms.
"We have submitted the [amendment] draft for reforms to the provincial government. Law making is the onus of the government [Sindh Assembly]," he said.
The draft, prepared in light of the Sindh High Court's September 7 order, was submitted to the provincial government a month ago. "We want to see the police serve the people and protect their lives and assets without discrimination or political interference."
