Rawalpindi   -   Inspector General of Police Punjab Inam Ghani said that not registering an FIR is tantamount to abusing the oppressed and helping the oppressor. This is because timely registration of FIRs is the beginning of delivery of justice. 

He further said that the best attitude should be taken towards the citizens visiting all the police offices including police stations and sincere efforts should be made to solve the problems of the citizens by treating them with good manners and courteous behaviour for making better relationships between police and the citizens. 

He further said that apart from cases of corruption and exploitation, he would stand by the force everywhere while action would be taken against the policemen involved in such cases under zero tolerance. 

He stressed that for rule of law, indiscriminate operations should be continued against the land mafia, drug dealers, gangs and other criminal elements so that the lives and property of the citizens could be protected as much as possible.  He further said that the best welfare of the police force is one of my top priorities so three high quality hospitals would be set up in Punjab for the treatment of the police force and their families where the personnel and their families could get state-of-the-art medical facilities. He further said that all are officers from the rank of IGP to Constable, the word employee will not be used for constable.  

He expressed these views while addressing at Irshad Shaheed Auditorium on Monday. On the occasion, Regional Police Officer Rawalpindi Imran Ahmar, City Police Officer Muhammad Ahsan Younis, DPO Attock Khalid Hamdani, DPO Jehlum Shakir Hussain Dawar, DPO Chakwal Muhammad Bin Ashraf and officers and officials from across the region were also present.
