RAWALPINDI– City Police Officer Captain (retired) DIG Muhammad Faisal Rana Thursday directed to stop incidents of acid attacks with the authority of law, saying sale of acid on shops without fulfilling the SOPs must be terminated.
Cases must be registered under the Anti Terrorism Act on incidents of acid attack. Law will deform the faces of those who deform the faces of innocent people through acid attacks, CPO said in directions to the police officers.
According to the details, CPO Faisal Rana directed SP Potohar Syed Ali, SP Saddar Rai Mazhar Iqbal and SP Rawal Asif Masood in a meeting that acid attack is a crime that not only deforms the face of victim but also deforms the society.
Incidents of acid attack, not only expose the  social ignorance but also challenges the law as no one can dare such act in the rule of law.
The CPO said we have to take preventive measures to stop acid attacks for which the SHOs in their respective areas, must check whether the legal requirements and SOPs are implemented at shops where acid is sold.
If the SOPs and legal requirements are not fulfilled, legal action must be taken against the responsible persons while the shops where SOPs are implemented, the owners of such shops must be made bound to sale the acid only according to the SOPs.
If any incident of acid attack occurs in the area, a case must be registered under sections of Anti Terrorism Act and the accused must immediately be arrested and challaned to Court with solid evidence so that he may be awarded such sentence by the Hon’ble Court that is exemplary for the society.
An awareness campaign against acid attacks is also essential as part of measures taken for the prevention of acid attacks.

 

CPO on strict legal action on domestic violence

CPO Faisal Rana issued directions for strict legal action on domestic violence, saying cases would be registered under sections of Domestic Violence Act 2016 in incidents of torture by husband to wife, brother to sister, son to mother and father to daughter.
According to the details, a high level meeting of police officers was held under the chair of City Police Officer Muhammad Faisal Rana which was attended by SSP Operations Tariq Walait, SSP Investigation Muhammad Faisal, SP Potohar Syed Ali, SP Saddar Rai Mazhar Iqbal, SP Rawal Asif Masood and other police officers.
CPO Faisal Rana addressing the meeting said that we have to stop domestic violence with the authority of Law and the rule of law. Domestic Violence at one side spoils the families and on the other hand results in various crimes.
The CPO said torture by husband to wife, brother to sister, Son to Mother and father to daughter, falls in the ambit of domestic violence. Police often implies section 354 PPC on such incidents but this section is meant for torture by a stranger.
Likewise, in such incidents the section 506-B is implied with witnesses of the family but the requirement of law is that in cases with this section the witness cannot be from the family.
The CPO said that it is essential to implement Domestic Violence Act 2016 in domestic violence incidents. If any complaint regarding domestic violence is received, a case may be registered under Domestic Violence act 2016.
Rana said that a strong FIR can be useful to get the accused sentenced from the Court. The CPO directed all the divisional SPs to ensure implementation of the directions.
The CPO said that we have to stop domestic violence through implementation and enforcement of law and preventive action. An awareness campaign on the agenda “Safe Rawalpindi is the first priority” may also be launched in this regard to aware the society that torturing wife, daughter, sister or the mother is not good.
Police officers must stop domestic violence and other such crimes in coordination with the other sections of the society,  the CPO said added he must immediately be informed if any incident of domestic violence occurs in the area.— PRESS RELEASE
