The Inspector General (IG) of Sindh Police has issued stringent instructions to police officers to promptly register First Information Reports (FIRs) for complainants and take decisive action against criminals, as reported by ARY News on Wednesday.

In a bid to curb criminal activities within the province, IG Sindh, Dr. Riffat Mukhtar, presided over a high-level meeting where he directed officers to implement stringent measures to combat crime in the region.

During the meeting, IG Sindh emphasized the need to register FIRs "free of cost," stating, "I will not inquire about the number of FIRs filed, but I will take severe action against those failing to register them."

He underscored that the failure to file FIRs for complainants could result in legal liability and granted District Senior Superintendents of Police (SSPs) full autonomy in their work. He assured complete support to district SSPs and urged them to carry out their duties with integrity.

IG Sindh commended the Special Branch's efforts in compiling lists of drug-related offenses, including activities related to narcotics and the gutka mafia. He pledged to take stern action against offenders with the assistance of these lists.

Furthermore, IG Sindh instructed police officials to take decisive action against street criminals in Karachi and ordered intelligence-based operations against dacoits throughout the city.

He also emphasized the importance of maintaining records for the High-Risk Management Systems (HRMS) and the Police Record Management System (PRMS).
