‘Police-prosecution coordination is a must to improve the investigation system’ | Instant News

The Karachi police chief said crime prevention would be carried out through crime detection, which was only possible with good investigation.

Additional IGP Karachi Ghulam Nabi Memon made this observation when he and Sindh Attorney General Dr. Fayyaz Hussain Shah held a joint meeting on Saturday.

The meeting was attended by IG assistant forensic Sindh, IT director of the Central Police Station, DIG CIA, DIG Karachi administration, all DIG zones, all Karachi SSP Investigation Units, AVLC SSP, AVCC SSP, all district SSPs, all SSP investigations, and all SP investigations division.

The operation of the meeting was attended by all sub-division officers and other officers. Because the prosecution has a central role in the investigation, it was decided to hold a meeting with the public prosecutor and the district investigation officer every month to correct deficiencies and errors in the investigation and bring the perpetrators to justice.

The meeting also decided to train police investigation officers and prosecution officers on the modern path to ensure justice for the people. An investigation system on the modern path must be established, it was observed.

Additional IGP Memon said the lack of security and resource arrangements was the main reason for the lack of direction in the investigation. Ensuring coordination, cooperation, and consultation between the prosecutor and the police is also important to improve the investigation system, he said, adding that weaknesses must also be overcome so that the accused manages to obtain guarantees or acquittals. The meeting said that revolutionary changes must be made in the investigation system to reduce the level of punishment and restore the growing mistrust in the criminal justice system.

The involvement of competent officers in the police prosecution through the Public Service Commission will soon produce better results, the meeting said. The Sindh Judicial Academy has begun training investigative officers to work on modern technology in various types of cases to ensure the punishment of those accused of various crimes and provide justice to the plaintiffs.

The investigation department will be able to adapt to modern equipment and technology, and efforts are being made in limited resources to provide assistance to the community.

In the current situation, in the context of COVID-19, the criminal justice system faces problems and challenges. The importance of establishing a TKP Investigation Unit in Karachi was also highlighted at the meeting, which agreed to form a committee consisting of the prosecution and investigation of officers in important cases.

It was decided that an annual function would be held where the best-performing investigative officer would be given gifts and certificates. The Karachi police chief also thanked Sindh Attorney General Dr Fayyaz Hussain Shah and his team on the occasion.
