It has been reported that a turf war between Islamabad police and Layyah police ensued, after a suspect was arrested in the Murree Road bomb blast. The police of both areas were at odds of how to handle the situation and this was probably due to lack of coordination between the two departments. It is unfortunate that the institution of police is in shambles and there is a huge communication gap. It is also important that proper protocols and procedures should be adopted, while the law enforcement apparatus should also be taken into confidence, before attempting any operation in a specific area, outside jurisdiction.
