Sukkur region Police suspended the operation launched against the dacoits in riverine areas of Obauro, Shikarpur, Kashmore and Kandhkot because of the lack of military grade weapons.

Sources in police said that Sindh Police had been facing much hurdles in buying the military grade weapons to meet the target of elimination of criminal gangs in Kutcha (Riverine) area of the Obauro, Kashmore – Kandhkot and Shikarpur.

The sources confided that the Home Department and Finance Department of Sindh government raised many queries over the purchasing of military grade weapons by the Sindh Police.

“The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Sindh Ghulam Nabi Memon after a meeting with DIGP Sukkur and Larkana had decided to purchase military grade weapons to launch massive and result-oriented operation against the dacoits,” sources said.

DIGP Sukkur and DIGP Larkana in their briefing had told IGP Sindh in a meeting that their officials and personnel were being martyred during the operation against dacoits owing to lacking of the modern weapons of military grade, because the dacoits have more sophisticated weapons than the police.

Sources further said that in the meeting it was also decided to block the cell phone network in the Kutcha areas of the Obauro, Shikarpur, Larkana, Kashmore-Kandhkot and Jacobabad and in this regard police officials proposed the areas where the network of the cell phone companies was to be blocked to meet the operation targets.

It was also decided in the meeting to confiscate the weapons recovered from the suspect criminals and their supporters besides conducting survey of the people residing in the Kutcha areas where there are the hideouts of the criminals.

It is to be mentioned here that Sindh High Court Circuit Bench Sukkur has summoned Home Secretary and Finance Secretary Sindh on February 23 to question them regarding the purchase of the military grade weapons.
