PESHAWAR - The KP Inspector General of Police has dissolved the Dispute Resolution Councils (DRC) in two police stations of Peshawar and asked the members who have any affiliation or are contesting the upcoming LG elections to quit the council.

A meeting was held here on Sunday at Police Lines in which all the reconstituted members of the DRC Peshawar Gulbahar and Gulberg were present.

The meeting was chaired by IGP Nasir Khan Durrani.

There were lawyers, retired judges, professional doctors, retired civil and military officers, businessmen, educationists, and social workers working voluntarily as members of DRC.

Durrani directed that one member from the lawyers or retired judges community should be included in every panel of the council as it would ensure that the decisions of the council are in accordance with the existing laws.

The IGP directed the CCPO that the registrar of the DRC would be rotated after every three months. The panels of the members would also go through a random rotation keeping in view that one person from the lawyers/retired judges would be part of the every panel.

It is to be mentioned here that poor segment of the society is the main beneficiary of these councils and these councils had been established to provide a forum to these people for amicable resolution of disputes.

These councils have been effective in providing relief to the general public all across the province.
