No one is safe anywhere in urban as well as rural areas where the incidents of abduction for ransom, theft and robbery are very common and the gangs of bandits are operating openly

An alarming situation prevails in Sindh as no one is safe anywhere in urban as well as rural areas where the incidents of abduction for ransom, theft and robbery are very common and the gangs of bandits are operating openly.

It has also now come on the record that there are covert hands of the local waderas and they have the political support from the local MPAs and MNAs who are also involved in getting released such notorious dacoits.

Recently, it was also seen that son of one of the advisors to Sindh Chief Minister was involved in smuggling of modern weapons from Balochistan in a police van to dacoits in Kashmore- Kandhkot and on reporting such incident in the media, advisor resigned and demanded inquiry of the incident. The Inspector General of Police has failed to exercise his full authority and no such progress is seen as the political involvement in police is visible. The police vans are being used in smuggling of weapons to dacoits and the senior superintendents of police in districts also fail to take action against the gangs of dacoits which is eye-opener for all of us.

Further, the chief Justice of Sindh has taken a very decisive step by calling the criminal justice committee meeting in which the Inspector General of police, Sindh and the Director General Rangers, Sindh inviting them to share opinion on the law and order situation in Sindh and they are directed to act according to shared minutes of meeting but in spite of that there is no positive development in the law and order situation in Sindh.

The question is that who will take onus of improving law and order situation in Sindh.

The alarming situation can also be judged from a video released by the dacoits wherein a child is tied in chain who is crying for the release and a huge amount of ransom has been demanded by dacoits. Although, the police have got released the child, but his release has raised several questions: How the police got the child released? Was it result of any encounter or a deal? What happened of kidnappers? The police have kept mum on such questions, which again raises doubts on the role of police.

The local police have completely failed to control law and order situation in Sindh and the inspector general of police Ghulam Nabi Memon seems unable to formulate any policy to counter the dacoits. The political parties will have to take steps in improving the law and order situation in Sindh as they have no any right to interfere in the police department because political involvement of local MPAs and MNAs in police saves the dacoits from being arrested. How such political involvement will end where the Senior Superintendents of police are being posted on their special recommendations.

The case of minor girl Priya Kumari is a test case for the Inspector General of Police who is missing since August, 2021 from Sukkur where she was serving water on 10th of the Moharamul Haram to local mourners. Since August, 2021 the release of Priaya Kumari has become a mystery. The Chief justice of Sindh Aqeel Abbassi will have to use powers of the criminal justice committee, and the Inspector General of Police and the Director General Rangers ought to be directed to recover Priya Kumari and all those peaceful citizens who have been abducted by the gangs.

The constitution of Pakistan guarantees dignity of the citizens and the Sindh High Court being the constitutional court should take the concrete steps in this regard. The Chief Justice of the Sindh High Court should take the matter of peace in Sindh seriously as the people consider the court as the last hope because the police have failed to maintain law and order and failed to discharge their duties honestly. The director general Rangers should also control the law and order situation. There is a dire need of intelligence based operations in the whole of Sindh which would also help the local police in arresting the real culprits.
