Ratodero, Sindh: Many junior police officers are posted as SHOs in Larkana district due to political influence.
According to reliable sources four head constables and one ASI are working as SHOs and the sheet branch of the SSP office is also given to a head constable instead of an officer of inspector rank. They said four sub-inspectors were directed to perform their duties at police pickets where usually head constables are posted.
The sources said head constable Hamad Korai is posted as SHO of Badah police station and another HC Ali Korai is posted as SHO Veehar police station. Sub-Inspector Tanveer Abbas Kamario has been posted as incharge of police picket established at Bakrani Tower. SI Aslam Pervaiz is posted at Rasulabad police picket, SI Noor Ahmed Mugheri at Murad Wahan police picket and SI Ilyas Sangi as incharge of Ali Goharabad police picket.
Posting of junior officers on senior posts while ignoring the rule of merit has resulted a lot of heartburns in the police department of district Larkana.
Meanwhile, an alleged bandit Ibrahim Jatoi was freed from illegal detention when raid commissioner of a court conducted search raid on Dhamrah police station and found him detained there without any entry in record.
The sources said the police had caught this bandit carrying Rs0.5 million head money three days ago from the limits of Akil PS, but he was kept in different police stations without any entry in record in order to extort bribes from his relatives. However, a brother of the accused, Ghulam Qadir Jatoi, filed an application against the illegal confinement of Ibrahim Jatoi in the sessions court. The court commissioner raided and freed the detainee.
However, SSP Larkana Khalid Mustafa Korai instead of suspending the SHO of Dhamrah police station, ordered suspension & arrest of Writing Head Constable of the said police station.
