When contacted, DIG Legal Lahore Police Abdur Rab conceded to the fact that the heinous crimes were on the rise in the province.
People are being indulged in such crimes with the rising frustration level among the society because of multiple reasons, he said. The police officer stated that it was also an unfortunate fact that a large number of such cases aren’t reported due to certain pressures from society the parents had to face.
“Police lacks in training, funds and facilities because of which such complex cases are not properly investigated in time,” the DIG said. According to the officer, Zaineb murder cases of Kasur was investigated and solved within a few weeks only with the help of technology and all the facilities provided to Police by the authorities concerned.
To another question, the DIG further said Police need to be equipped on modern lines to deal with such cases as outdated methods wouldn’t be helpful to solve such cases complex in nature. He said police officials should also be imparted modern training for the purpose as well.
