KARACHI: The government of Sindh has imposed restrictions on law enforcement agencies, particularly the police, from approaching foreign missions directly, according to a policy issued by the department to inspector general of police and director of civil defence.

"I am directed to refer to the captioned subject and to state that the home minister has been pleased to issue policy guidelines that henceforth no officer belonging to the two attached departments falling within his ministerial competence – the Sindh police and Civil Defence - would directly or indirectly contact or respond to any foreign mission or an officer or any institution under their functional domain unless express permission has been sought in advance from the home minister clearly indicating the purpose of such contact or the response as the case may be,” reads the notification. “This may be noted and complied with in letter and spirit and such directions may also be conveyed to the lower formations for compliance."
