Some 48,000 policemen would be deployed on security duty across the Sindh province, as per contingency plan prepared for the three days of Eid ul Azha.
According to the plan, presented to the IGP- indh, Dr. Syed Kaleem Imam here on Friday special focus would be to check instances of hides snatching and stealing.
Special arrangements have also been made to combat possible cases of street crimes, particularly in urban centres of the province.
Sindh Police, urging the authorities to ensure that crimes were averted at every cost, sought close coordination between all agencies concerned with equal attention to sensitize people about measures to protect themselves against criminals through contacting the police force.
People must be well informed to immediately approach authorities via the Helpline 15 in case of being harassed, or being exposed to incidents of robbery, and or mugging, he directed officials attending a meeting chaired by him at the CPO office.
IGP-Sindh also sought adequate understanding of the policemen on security duty about the code of conduct developed by the administration with regard to donation, collection and supply of hides during Eid ul Adha.
Reminding that section 114 had been imposed, Dr. Imam said policemen must be well sensitized about their responsibilities with regard to implementation of the law concerned.—APP
