Kausar inquired about the crime rate, under investigation cases and performance of the officers from SP (Rural) Nosherwan Ali, SDPO Rukhsar Mehdi, and SHO Mirza Gulfraz. He directed the officials that redressal of public complaints must have been the priority of the force.

He directed all the police officials to discharge their duty honestly and ensure protection of life and property of the citizens. He also asked the personnel to wear bullet proof jackets while on duty.
