Police officials refuse to budge

Ppi June 23, 2010

RATODERO: The 39 head constables in Larkana zone have not followed transfer instructions. The deputy inspector general of police (DIGP), Larkana zone, had given orders for the transfer of 20 Writing Head Constables (WHCs) from Larkana district police stations to the Kashmore district. Similarly, 19 WHCs from Kashmore had been transferred to Larkana district stations. However, so far none of the police officials have obeyed the instructions and are allegedly trying to influence the DIGP to withdraw the order.

All of the WHCs were directed to report with immediate effect to the respective District Police Officers (DPOs).

The notification, dated June 17, 2010, includes names of the Larkana district WHCs Mukhtiar Ali, Abdul Rasheed Bhutto, Ghulam Hyder Kandhro, Riaz Ali Dayo, Muhammad Nawaz Narejo, Nisar Ahmed Jamarani, Muhammad Alam Jamarani, Irshad Ahmed Abbasi, Nazir Hussain Sandelo, Ghulam Asghar Syed, Nadeem Ahmed Narejo Mirani, Gul Hassan Khokhar, Qamardin Siyal, Ghulam Hyder Wahoocho, Sikander Ali Channa, Mazhar Ali Sanghro, Damsaz Ali Chandio, Abdul Ghani Memon and Allah Warrayo.

The WHCs transferred from Kashmore include Muhammad Moosa Domki, Ghulam Mustafa Bijrani, Mumtaz Ali Soomro, Ali Sher Waseer, Barkat Ali Malik, Mir Dost Solangi, Muhammad Hassan Bhangwar, Gulsher Ahmed Jakhrani, Sukhio Khan Choliani, Abdul Khaliq Bhangwar, Riaz Ahmed Domki, Wahid Bux Choliani, Abdul Majeed Jafferi, Ghulam Murteza Mirani, Muhammad Ayoub Khoso, Khamiso Khan Chandio, Aijaz Ahmed Mirani, Muhammad Anwar Chachar and Ghulam Yasin Malik.

Both the DPOs were also directed to order these police officials to report at their new place of posting immediately but the DPOs have also failed to fulfil their duties.

According to police officials, the orders for the transfers were given after several complaints were received about the WHCs. The officers have been accused of corruption and of patronising criminal gangs since they have been in these districts for a long time.

A few months ago, the DIGP Larkana Zone had also given orders that the WHCs in Kambar-Shahdadkot district should be exchanged with the WHCs in Shikarpur district. The orders followed the same reasoning that too much time in the same district allows officials to strike up close relationships with gangs. However, even that order has not been implemented yet and is said to be pending due to political pressure.

Residents have welcomed the transfer orders and have urged the DIGP to implement these immediately so that the law and order situation in the districts could improve.
