LAHORE Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Ahmed Raza Tahir has directed the police to focus on heinous crimes and arrests of notorious gangsters and proclaimed offenders rather than raiding hotels and brothels. Police sources said that the CCPO issued a circular to all the SPs in this regard and ordered them to immediately restrict raids on brothels and hotels. The CCPO also warned the SHOs that those found involved in such raids would be taken to task and strict disciplinary action would be taken against them. Police sources believed that the CCPO issues these directions after he observed that the policemen are frequently raiding hotels and brothels to mint money rather that focusing on the crimes control and arresting hardened criminals. The CCPO further said that the policemen should step up crackdown against hardened criminals, drug-dealers, proclaimed offenders, and those running gambling dens in order to downgrade the rising crimes in the City.
