Order in disorder
Of all other departments, the police department attracts maximum public attention because of its everyday role in public life. Recently some officers were stripped off their so-called shoulder promotions and demoted to their original ranks. In one case especially, an SP was demoted to the rank of an inspector. What a comedown. How did a police inspector manage to get one shoulder promotion over another? Finally, someone caught up with him; otherwise, he could have become IG police through his astute moves.
The police department is in one fine mess. Two high profile criminal acts in Karachi – kidnapping of son of sitting Chief Justice of the Province and killing of maestro Sabri, speak for themselves. According to a newspaper report, a businessman controls the postings and transfers of the police officials in Karachi. Some businessman he! It reminds of Mafioso in Latin American countries who had their own men in police and other law enforcing agencies. To an ordinary citizen, this situation might appear chaotic, but it’s not so. There’s complete order in this disorder, which benefits the operators behind scene, causing miseries to teeming millions who are expendable. — Lahore
