A police constable has been given life imprisonment by the Sind High Court for his involvement in a drug case. He was earlier convicted by the Control of Narcotics Substance Court, but taking advantage of his uniform, he escaped from the court premises, but strangely continued to perform his duties. He filed an application in the Sind High Court, seeking suspension of the sentence. The court expressed surprise over the non-arrest of the convicted police officer who was still performing his duties and ordered his arrest.

This is an example of justice as no one is above the law; whether one is in uniform or not, one is equal in the eyes of the law. The action of the Sind High Court is, indeed, commendable.
