Punjab Inspector General of Police Inam Ghani on Tuesday said that police teams have been working day and night to arrest all the accused involved in violence and assault on a woman in Greater Iqbal Park (GIP).

“During raids in different districts of the province, 34 more accused have been arrested, bringing the total number of arrested accused to 126.”

Inam Ghani said that 15 more of the arrested persons are being sent on judicial remand for identification.

He directed the DIG Investigations to intensify efforts to arrest the remaining accused with the help of geo-fencing, all evidence including Nadra records and modern resources and bring them to justice through strong challans.

The IG Police further said that the accused who have subjected the women to violence, abuse and ill-treatment do not deserve any concession and supervisory officers under their personal supervision should ensure steps to control such crimes and send the detailed reports to the Central Police Office.

He further said that measures should be taken for the protection of women in parks, bus stands, educational institutions, markets and other sensitive places and arrest of criminals involved in gender crimes and getting them strictly punished by the courts should not be delayed.

He further said that the investigation into the Greater Iqbal Park incident should be brought to a logical conclusion as soon as possible and no effort should be spared in providing justice to the victim.
