Police chief warns against harassment of women

FAISALABAD: Faisalabad City Police Officer on Thursday issued a warning to all police stations against harassment of female relatives of suspects.

CPO Bilal Siddique Kamyana said the warning would be followed up by strict action against police officials found guilty of harassing relatives of suspects during raids and at police stations.

He said several complaints had been received at his office accusing the police of unethical behaviour during investigation of criminal cases. He said the officials responsible for such behaviour would not be allowed to malign the reputation of the entire department.

He directed the station house officers to ensure that the relatives of the suspects were not mistreated. He also warned the police against use of illegal measures such as detaining people without court warrants and keeping relatives of suspects’ hostage at police lockups in order to pressure the latter into surrendering themselves.
