The lawyers of Hafizabad observed strike on Tuesday and took out a rally in protest against “what they called” the indifferent attitude of District Police Officer Haroon Joyia, demanding his transfer immediately.

On the occasion, DBA President Farooq Ahmad Khokhar, General Secretary Rai Waqar Ahmad and PTI Lawyers Wing President Aman Ullah Sandhu said that they would continue the strike on Wednesday and Thursday against the ‘uncalled-for’ behaviour of the DPO. They said that TBA Pindi Bhattian would also observe strike during the next two days. They said that crime incidents in the district have increased since the posting of the DPO, adding that despite courts orders, FIRs are not being registered.
