It is unfortunate that there is no proper police complaint system in place, to provide relief to the public in case of any transgressions by the police personnel. On a daily routine basis one observes the various incidents of police torture and abuse of authority, surfacing in the news, but till now no comprehensive measures have been taken to curtail such episodes. The primary objective of the police should be to safeguard the rights of the citizens, but entirely the opposite has been taking place. The relevant authorities and citizen groups should look into this matter on urgent basis, while a proper complaint mechanism should be established. YASIR HAMEED, Islamabad, November 22.
