NEW HAVEN, CT, US: At the risk of sounding callous, may I ask why the police is not so efficient when it comes to the common man? I did not even know that the police in Pakistan have forensic experts and laboratories till I read what they have done in response to Mr Taseer’s tragic abduction. Of course, my expression of sympathy and prayer for his safe and quick return doesn’t take away from the fact that the police and other law-enforcement agencies work efficiently only when someone from a rich and well-connected background is the victim of a crime.
