Police officials and installations are in the crosshairs of the terrorists and have become the target, in the recent spree of attacks. This is an alarming situation where the terrorists are out to destabilise the security apparatus of the country. The suicide blast targeting a senior police official in Karachi makes the severity of the situation evident to all of us. Unfortunately, our administration fails to realise this and the department of police has been so far neglected by them. It is imperative that if the security situation is to improve, it is the police institution which has to be supported. HASSAN BASHIR, Islamabad, September 19.
