KARACHI: Inspector General Police Sindh Ghulam Nabi Memon has called for overhauling the criminal justice system and stressed on introducing reforms to eradicate crime.

In a conversation with Bol News, the Police chief expressed concerns that criminals were released by the court despite strong evidence against them.

“When the case is presented before a judge, the benefit of doubt goes to the accused in our justice system,” he said, expressing his displeasure over the criminal justice system.

“Only when forensic and technological evidence is available to the investigating officer, the case is strong. Or else the case is weak and the benefit goes to the accused,” he added,

He said there is an urgent need to reform the justice system according to the needs of our times.  He said Sindh law adviser Murtaza Wahab will soon present a proposal for change in legislation.

He further said the police is working on various community policing projects. He said all police officers have been registered in “Point Me” app to ensure the their presence. He said the app is useful knowing where police personnel are performing their duties.

When asked about citizen complaints about the attitude of the policemen and traffic policemen, he said the Sindh Police has decided to wear body cameras to improve the snap-checking and checking by traffic police.

He said 400 cameras will be given each to the district police and traffic police. He said the number of cameras will be increased for community policing under the Safe City project. The program has been linked to 15 helpline to improve response time.

IGP said that the world’s best technology is being used to improve the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD). He said the modern equipment will help improve police performance.

He said local police officials should catch the elements involved in organized crime and also make a strong case that leads to punishment. “What police reforms are being made to overcome investigation loopholes? Conviction is very important,” he said adding that investigation should be good for strong case.

When asked what police stations are doing to change the culture and when will it be fixed, IG Sindh said a practical example can be witnessed in the driving license branch.

He said police stations are receiving budged and competent people are being appointed. He said SHOs of all police stations have been mandated to register FIRs as it increase pressure and prevents crime.
