RAWALPINDI: The Rawalpindi City Police Officer (CPO) Ahsan Younus has directed the subordinate police officials to submit the performance reports of their assigned police units within two days.
Earlier, the Punjab Inspector General (IG) Shoaib Dastagir had chaired a meeting in the last week of April to review the working of police units including the offices and police stations across the province.
During the meeting, the Additional IG Internal Accountability Branch drew the attention of the meeting participants towards the fallacies highlighted in a report regarding the operations and working of police units across the province.

The official had directed all field officers to pay special attention towards the matter and following this revelation, the Punjab IG had assigned the regional, district, divisional and city police officials to submit detailed inspection reports pertaining performance of police units in their respective jurisdictions. All these police officials were allocated different police units for cross-checking and maintaining transparency in the reports.
However, The Express Tribune has learnt that many SPs and DSPs of Rawalpindi have not so far submitted the report to the city police chief so that he could not forward it to the IG.
Taking strict notice of delay in preparation of inspection reports, CPO issued a letter to the operations and investigation SPs and SSPs of three divisions in Rawalpindi including Rawal, Potohar and Saddar to ensure that their subordinate police officers yield their reports within two days. The city police chief cited the task assigned to them on April 25 in the letter as well.
