It has recently been reported that an unpleasant brawl between a DPO and security personnel guarding military area took place in Rawalpindi. This was due to misunderstanding, as the person was in plain clothes and resultantly taken under custody on suspicion. This clearly highlights the lack of coordination among civilian law enforcement agencies and their counterparts, military and otherwise. It is expected that with the current deteriorating status of security in the country, every department will extend its cooperation with the police and vice versa. This will not only assist in curbing security threats, but will also improve coordination and prevent such incidents from taking place in future. YASIR HAMEED, Islamabad, August 25.
