Sindh IGP Amjad Javed Salimi has said that 10,000 complaints filed against police from among a population of 30 million is not exceptional and not something to worry about. He was nevertheless trying his best to bring down the number of complaints and redress people’s grievances, said the IGP at the inauguration ceremony of resource management system centre here late on Saturday night. He said that it was not difficult to address such complaints and the resource management system had been established in the province to do exactly that. He advised people to cooperate with police and consider the law enforcers their friends and urged parents to inform their children that police were there to protect public and redress all their issues. He said that when public celebrated Eid at their homes with their loved ones all police officers and officials were performing their duties to protect them and their properties. People should respect police for that, he said. Earlier, the IGP told journalists after visiting the shrine of Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan that facilities and salary of Sindh police would be brought at par with those of Punjab. He said that he was unaware of his transfer and said he would follow the government orders. He was trying to change Thana culture in the province and improve police’s professional skills and urged public to cooperate with police in this regard. The IGP said that 10,000 police officials were receiving training and a complaint cell had been established to look into complaints about registration of FIR and other issues. He was accompanied by Jamshoro SSP Bashir Ahmed Birohi and SP Suhail Aziz Talpur. Published in Dawn, September 3rd,
