It has been reported recently that the security departments have expressed their inability to screen guards on VIP duties. After high profile assassination incidents this year, it is the duty of the government to provide the necessary facilities to the police, so they can carry out a comprehensive screening throughout the department. The recruitment method in addition should also be scrutinized and improved, so only qualified applicants are chosen for the job. It is imperative that the police should be cleared of such elements, so the public trust can be restored in it. HASSAN BASHIR, Islamabad, March 7.
