“A home has been destroyed in Rawalpindi due to police firing. Who will answer to the mother and sisters of the deceased brothers,” he said and questioned the police officers about training being provided to the force.
He said Rawalpindi RPO and DPO had not done their work to train the force and expressed displeasure at the unprofessional attitude of police officials. “Such incidents are intolerable,” he said and directed the committee to improve training of the force.
