Police in Punjab are exposed to challenges of diversified nature. Despite they are expected to perform multiple functions, the fact remains that the core of police function is crime fighting. The test of police efficiency is the reduction in both the crime and the fear of crime. The top priority of Rawalpindi Region police is to provide full security and safety to the people. I assure you that criminal and anti-social elements will find us really tough. I want people to feel safe and be safe. Homicide and other crimes against person also shake the public peace and tranquility of life. However, the Police are committed to ensure the policing strategies aiming at reducing the incidence of heinous offences. In the wake of terrorist suicidal attacks and bomb blasts: special measures and relentless follow-up efforts are also being made to prevent any terrorist incidents as the region also has a history of sectarian killing.

On our part, we continue our crime preventive strategies like frequent picketing and search operations, extensive patrolling, surveillance of bad characters and apprehension of Proclaimed Offenders, tough action against their harbourers and finally liberal action on under the preventive laws. Crime is a complicated social phenomenon that cannot be explained from one perspective. Similarly, it cannot be solved without active cooperation among members of the public, various key sectors and law enforcement agencies. Indeed, where positive collaboration among key actors is thriving, both the incidence and fear of crime rapidly go down. This community policing introduces a new dimension where the fight against crime is a vibrant partnership between the police and members of the public.

Early finalization of investigation is constantly emphasized upon and reviewed up to the level of the Provincial Police Officer. Thus focus on both the quality and early disposal of cases under investigation remains the top priority of Regional Police Rawalpindi and all the DPOs, SPs Investigation , SDPOs and SHOs are required to proactively supervise the cases pending investigations. Finally, where as the police has an obligation and duty to function according to the Constitution, law, and democratic aspiration of the people. I expect the every member of police force to be civil and police in behavior but firm in discharge of his duties. Law must be implemented without any fear or favor. At the same time, I also believe that the law of the country must be respected at all times by all the citizens and there should be on exception. It is the duty of the police to maintain law and order.

It is also the responsibility of the public to obey the law.

Rawalpindi: 2 suspected robbers caught red-handed

RAWALPINDI: An ex-policeman and a retired Pakistan Air Force (PAF) technician were caught red-handed while allegedly looting a Pakistani expatriate’s house at Adiala Road on Friday. However, their two accomplices escaped, police said.

Tahir Iqbal, one of the suspected robbers and a retired PAF official, was shot and injured by the inmates when he tried to flee with the loot. His other accomplice was identified as Najmul Hassan, who was dismissed from the Rawalpindi police by City Police Officer Azhar Hameed Khokhar in March for being absent from duty for only three days.

Police investigating officer SI Aftab Ahmed said some of the looted gold jewellery had been recovered from the possession of the arrested robbers while a manhunt was launched to capture the two other robbers who escaped with Rs23,000, gold bangles and a cellphone.

The family of Waheed Akhtar, who is settled in Dubai, called his brother Raja Saeed Akhtar and informed him that a gang of robbers had entered their house at Sadiq Town, Adiala Road.

On receiving the phone call, he along with two other relatives rushed to the house and found the doors locked from inside.

After finding the family in trouble, he called the people from the neighborhood and forced their way into the house. On seeing the public, the robbers opened fire and in retaliation Raja Saeed also fired gunshots which injured one of the suspects who was identified as Tahir Iqbal.

The other suspect, Najmul Hassan, was also captured by the people and later handed over to the police. The investigating officer said during interrogation the former policeman revealed that he had committed at least five robberies since he lost his police job.

“Some of the looted gold jewellery was found from the scene of the crime while the Rs23,000, two gold bangles and a cellphone were taken away by the fleeing robbers.”

The suspected robber who sustained a bullet injury to his leg was shifted to the District Headquarters Hospital where he was stated to be out of danger.
