    18th amendment: anomalies abound
    The constitutional mess created by the 18th Amendment continues to add to the confusion in the working relationship between the federation and its federating units. It has rather left this relationship more fragile and acrimonious. The jurisdictions of superior courts are, therefore, being invoked to help resolve rifts and differences between the Centre and provinces relating to understanding and implementation of the subjects altered, changed or modified by the 18th Constitutional Amendment.



    In a latest judgment, the Supreme Court has ruled that the police was a concurrent subject, falling well within the legislative and executive competence of the federation and provinces on issues relating to all aspects of crime and maintenance of public order. Overriding a ruling by the Sindh High Court that declared police was no more a concurrent subject and parliament lacked the legislative competence to deal with it, the top court referred to the policing role being played by a number of federal agencies. “These federal police agencies include the FIA, NAB and the ANF, Railways Police, the Pakistan Motorways Police and Frontier Constabulary,” says the top court order, adding, “The performance of policing functions by these federal agencies in the province is not dependent upon the consent or collaboration of the provincial governments.”

    It was the second judgment in a week’s time dealing with constitutional and administrative anomalies that continue to surface due to some inherent flaws in the 18th Amendment. Earlier, the Supreme Court had rejected a set of petitions claiming the ownership of three major health facilities of Karachi. The Sindh government had argued that since the subject of health had been devolved to provinces under the 18th Amendment, the federal government had no right to manage or control any health facility outside the federal territory.

    A number of constitutional experts had throughout maintained that it was an ill-conceived decision to do away with the Concurrent List from the Constitution, which has led to a number of constitutional and administrative issues besides rifts between the Centre and provinces. Given the war of egos over the 18th amendment, it seems that the superior judiciary may continue to take the burden of rectifying the wrongs done by the 18th Amendment.

    Police force for Fata facing acute shortage of seniors
    PESHAWAR: Already facing crisis-like situation due to acute shortage of officers in senior grades, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police is going to move into seven more districts of the erstwhile Fata as well as six Frontier Regions and one district of Pata, a source said on Friday.

    The force will need more officers, at least 30 percent of the already sanctioned seats for senior cops, while moving into the tribal areas. The positions in the junior ranks are to be filled by inducting the personnel of the Levies and Khassadar force already working in the merged districts.

    "For the senior positions, the force will need more officers of the Police Service of Pakistan from grade-17 to grade-20. Though the KP Police through the provincial government has requested time and again for transferring more senior officers to the province, it is yet to get the required cops for the merged districts and other towns," a source told The News.

    The source said the bosses at the Central Police Office were looking for options, including posting junior officers as district police officers, SP Investigation and SPs and SSPs in other wings of the force after moving into the erstwhile Fata. The process of deploying cops in the tribal areas is likely to start in the next few weeks.

    The acute shortage of officers in all senior grades, from grade-18 to grade-21, can be gauged from the fact that the Central Police Office mentioned it in at least three of its letters sent to the concerned quarters in December 2018 alone.

    A large number of junior policemen have been posted on senior positions due to the dearth of officers in upper grades. "A letter of the DIG Headquarters at the Central Police Office to the secretary Home and Tribal Affairs in mid-December stated the force has sanctioned five positions of Additional IGPs in grade-21 and they do not have a single officer in the required grade," a source said.

    The source added that the letter also mentioned that there were 19 sanctioned positions of the Police Service of Pakistan in KP in grade-20, 35 positions in grade-19 and 54 in grade-18. There is shortage of three officers in grade-20, 21 officers in grade-19 and 15 officers in grade-18, it added.

    A number of officers have managed their posting out of the province in recent months due to one or the other reason. Hardly a few have reported to the province in recent months.

    Due to the shortage of officers, some deputy inspectors general (DIGs) of police in grade-20 are posted as Additional IGPs, which is a grade-21 position. Besides, a number of grade-19 officers are working as DIGs, which is a grade 20 position. The same is the case with SPs, DSPs and other junior grades.

    The police authorities had to approve a policy a few months back to post grade-17 deputy superintendents of police (DSPs) as DPOs due to non-availability of cops in the required grades.

    The provincial police authorities on a number of occasions had asked the federal government through the KP government to declare the province a 'Hard Area' like Balochistan and Gilgit-Baltistan so that police officers in senior grades were posted here for a mandatory term.

    Senior officers have to serve for a certain mandatory period in 'Hard Area' to meet the criteria for posting to top grades. A large number of senior officers were transferred to Balochistan in the last many years after the province was awarded the status of 'Hard Area'.

    The source pointed out that it was a test case for the ruling PTI now that it was running the federal government to accept the genuine demand of the party's government in KP and the KP Police.

    "We have written letters to the government for transferring more officers to the province, especially when we are moving into the erstwhile Fata and taking over more districts. We especially need officers in the rank of SSP and SP for Fata," KP Police Director Public Relations, Waqar Ahmad told The News when asked as to what steps had been taken to meet the shortage of officers in the KP Police.

    KP police introduce 'Raabta' SMS system to facilitate complainants, keep track of case progress
    [​IMG]
    The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) police on Sunday night introduced an SMS-based system to facilitate complainants of heinous crimes, the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) announced on Twitter.

    The Raabta system will facilitate the tracing of progress in cases and allow complainants to remain in contact with the Investigation Officer (IO) tasked with probing their case, the PTI said, quoting Peshawar Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Qazi Jamil.

    Once a first information report is registered in any police station in the province, the complainant will receive a text message containing the serial number of the FIR, the sections of law that it has been lodged under, and the name and contact number of the IO.

    The IO will also be sent an SMS with the name and contact number of the complainant so that they can contact and coordinate with the latter. Once the IO has contacted the complainant, they will apprise their senior officers of developments in the investigation.

    Additionally, as the FIR is filed, senior police officials including the CCPO, senior superintendents of police and deputy superintendents of police, will also receive the case details.

    "[The] purpose [of the new system] is to facilitate [the] complainant so that he/she knows that his/her case is registered and contact [has been] established," the PTI tweeted. "It will prevent complainant trouble to get FIR details and botheration to trace case."
    The PTI added that the aim of Raabta is to facilitate complainants and make the IO accessible to them. "Moreover, all supervisory officers will get details and they will ask the IO for updates and will also ask the complainant for his feedback etc."

    More features will be added to the new system, the PTI said.

    The move is part of the PTI's agenda to introduce police reforms in KP in order to improve the law and order situation in the province. The PTI in its manifesto promised to make public outreach to police easier. The promise is part is the party's plan to depoliticize and strengthen policing.

    Police reforms panel discusses complaints redress mechanism
    A meeting of the Police Reforms Committee (PRC) was held in the Supreme Court on Monday under the chairmanship of Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, Chief Justice of Pakistan/Chairman Law and Justice Commission of Pakistan.

    The meeting was attended by Amjad Javed Saleemi, IGP Punjab, Dr Naeem Khan, IGP KP, Dr SK Imam, IGP Sindh, Mohsin A Butt, IGP Balochistan, Amir Zulifiqar Khan, IGP ICT, Salahauddin Khan, IGP AJK, Sanaullah Abbasi, IGP Gilgit-Baltistan, former IGPs Tariq Khosa, Shoukat Javed, Tariq Parvez, Dr Shoaib Suddle, Syed Masud Shah and Afzal Ali Shigri to discuss the implementation of public complaints redressal mechanism, measures to improve quality of investigation and criminal justice reforms as envisaged by the Chief Justice of Pakistan.

    Dr Raheem Awan, Secretary LJCP, welcomed the participants and gave a brief background of the working of Police Reforms Committee and agenda of the meeting. The chief justice in his opening remarks highlighted the fact that despite launching of the PRC report, the key stakeholders of the criminal justice system and the general public are not still aware of the contents of the same.

    He directed that the secretariat of the Law and Justice Commission of Pakistan should convene a meeting of the relevant stakeholders of the criminal justice system who would be briefed about the contents and purposes of the PRC report. The IGP Punjab informed that the complaints redressal mechanism has already been operationalised after the direction of the Steering Committee on Police Reforms dated 29 October, 2018. He said the complaints are being received through email, post, by hand, through dedicated phone numbers and other means of communication for convenience and to facilitate the general public for speedy and expeditious redressal of grievances, being faced by them.

    The Police chief informed that around 163 complaints are being received per day to the fulltime designated police officers.

    He further stated that total of 11,436 complaints were received for the period from 1 December, 2018 to 8 February, 2019 and 7,382 complaints have been disposed of while 4,054 are under process.

    The IGP Sindh informed that 21,218 complaints were pending on 31 December, 2018 and the number of complaints received in January 2019, was 2,324.

    He further stated that the total pendency was 23,542. He further stated that 17,313 complaints were disposed of in January 2019 and the pendency as on 1 February, 2019 was 6,229.

    The KP police chief informed that during January 2019, 1,573 complaints were received. He further stated that 1,037 complaints have been disposed of till 31 January, 2019, while 536 are pending.

    The IGP Balochistan informed that so far 117 complaints have been received. He stated that 72 have been disposed of and 45 are under process.

    The ICT police chief informed that for the period 1 November, 2018 till date a total of 3,845 complaints have been received. He stated that 3,283 complaints have been redressed while 250 are in process.

    The police chief of Gilgit Baltistan informed that 15 complaints have been received and 10 have been resolved while five are pending.

    After these presentations, the committee deliberated that such complaints redressal mechanism will provide speedy and expeditious redressal to the complaints of the general public at their doorstep and would also decrease the burden/backlog of the courts of law in the shape of 22-A and 22-B of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898 and writ petitions of similar nature.

    The chief justice pointed out the grey areas of the investigations and emphasised upon investigating agencies to chalk out such mechanism of investigation that not only the culprits of the offence are pointed out, but they be convicted under the relevant provisions of law by providing the truthful evidence and the apprehension of false evidence be totally eliminated.

    The chief justice emphasised that training of the investigation officers and prosecutors should be carried out in the judicial academies across the country to improve their professional standards and secretary LJCP stated that the secretariat of the LJCP can engage with the federal and provincial judicial academies in arranging modules/courses for improvement of the professional standards of the investigation.

    Police proposal to form dispute resolution panels rejected
    LAHORE: The chief secretary has rejected the proposal of establishment of district dispute resolution committees (DDRCs) across the province and this development is being seen an attempt to hamper reforms in the police.

    After examining the matter for four months or so, the chief secretary has declared the DDRCs beyond the provisions of law.

    Earlier to this, the additional chief secretary (home), the secretary (law) and secretary (prosecution) also put up similar nature critical notes respectively on the summary which was forwarded by Inspector General of Punjab Police Amjad Javed Saleemi.

    CS declares it beyond the provisions of law; move is being seen an attempt to hamper reforms in police

    Mr Saleemi had drafted the summary seeking approval from Chief Minister Usman Buzdar for establishment of the DDRCs and its implementation through an ordinance, an official told Dawn.

    He said apparently the CM endorsed observations of the chief secretary and heads of the other government institutions and referred the matter to the cabinet committee.

    The [cabinet] committee after going through it [in detail] raised objections and forwarded the case to a sub-committee on law and order headed by Law Minister Raja Basharat to revisit the same.

    Consequently, the ‘procedural hiccups’ and ‘bureaucratic bottlenecks’ hampered the process as the case of establishment of DDRCs is still lying pending in the offices of the concerned authorities for approval even after a lapse of four months or so.

    Talking about its significance, the official said the establishment of DDRCs was a major component of the police reforms to make it a public service institution rather than “a government body.”

    He said the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government had tasked the Punjab IGP with replicating the set-up as provided under Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police Act 2017.

    The Law and Justice Commission of Pakistan had also supported the concept of the DDRCs while launching the Police Reforms Committee’s report — “Police Reforms: Way Forward” — in January this year with a sole purpose of easing burden on courts all over the country.

    Retired Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar had launched the report while a steering committee headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa, (now CJP) had also worked on the implementation of the recommendations.

    In the summary, Mr Saleemi had pleaded that in the wake of excessively over-burdened segments of criminal justice system i.e courts and police, petty issues especially the non-cognisable offences, sometimes become a long and expensive tug of war among the parties.

    “There is an urgent need for introducing a dynamic low-cost intervention through alternate dispute resolution in the form of the district dispute resolution committees,” reads the summary.

    He further stated that a detailed draft on the rationale, functions, structure including code of ethics for committee members etc was prepared highlighting its significance, including salient features of these committees.

    “A draft amendment regarding insertion of Article 168-A in the existing Police Order 2002, for constitution of DDRCs at district, sub-division or police station level has been placed for approval,” the summary reads.

    Besides giving reference of KP Police Act 2017, the IGP Punjab also referred the sections 96, 97, 98 and 99 of the Punjab Local Government Act 2013 which had introduced the concept of panchayat (village council) after it was vetted by the law department.

    The law secretary objected to the summary stating, “The settlement of all cases, though they may be of petty nature, by the committee constituted by the Provincial Police Officer may travel beyond the provisions contained in the Section 345 and thereby coming to be repugnant to them and thus void in terms of Article 142 (b) read with Article 143 of the Constitution.”

    Prosecution Secretary Nadeem Aslam Chaudhry observed that the proposed amendment in the Police Order 2002 might contradict the procedure contained in Cr.P.C or create legal complications.

    “The Section 154 of the Cr.P.C provides that an officer in-charge of a police station is bound to register an FIR where information relating to the commission of a cognisable offence is received,” states Mr Chaudhry.

    He further stated that Section 155 of the Cr.P.C provides that whenever an information regarding commission of a non-congisable offence is given to an officer in-charge of a police station, he/she shall enter the substance of such information into a book and refer the information to the magistrate for seeking his permission for investigation.

    “The upshot is that police on receipt of any complaint is bound to proceed under sections 154 or 155 of the Code as the case may be and referral of the matter to the district dispute resolution committees may delay registration of FIR and investigation leading to the legal complications,” observed the secretary (prosecution).

    Additional chief secretary (home) retired Capt Fazeel Asghar categorically rejected the proposal stating, “The home department does not support the proposal of IGP/PPO Punjab.”

    Mr Asghar said let the [cabinet] committee on legislative business consider the matter holistically and give final shape to the proposal prior to placing it before the cabinet.

    Adjustment of khasadars in police difficult part of merger plan
    PESHAWAR: With nearly 50 per cent personnel dead, the adjustment of 16,000-strong Khasadar force operating in the seven merged tribal districts and six attached subdivisions of the defunct Fata with the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police or Levies force seems to be the most difficult component of the merger plan.

    In background interviews senior functionaries dealing with the merger process admitted that the adjustment or regularisation of the centuries old Khasadar force with the police or local Levies would be unrealistic.

    “How the government will adjust personnel of Khasadar force in police or Levies force, who do not have fixed tenure of service,” wondered an official.

    He said in one of the tribal districts, over 30 per cent of the personnel of the Khasadar force were aged over 60.
    “The merger or adjustment of the Khasadar force will open Pandora’s box,” said another official.

    The total strength of the Khasadar force in seven tribal districts and six subdivisions is 15,673 against 10,000 personnel of Levies force. District wise strength of khasadars Bajaur 460, Mohmand 2,553, Khyber 2,369, Orakzai 830, Kurram 866, North Waziristan 1,746, South Waziristan 2,966, Peshawar subdivision 105, Kohat 395, Bannu 693, Tank 451, Lakki 188 and Dera Ismail Khan has 265 personnel.
    Report claims around 50pc officials dead but their salaries are drawn by families
    A report submitted to the provincial government suggests that nearly 50 per cent of the Khasadars had expired, but their salaries were regularly drawn by their kith and kin.

    After the abolition of the department of law and order in the secretariat for defunct Fata, the matters related to Khasadar and Levies forces are now reported to the home secretary.

    Sources said the defunct Fata secretariat had proposed to the government to offer golden handshake to Khasadar officials to relieve them or introduce new mechanism for fresh recruitment. The existing mechanism of Khasadari doesn’t match with the system of police and Levies, said one official.

    Unlike Levies force, a regular force for policing in the defunct Fata, Khasadari has something of a hereditary right - an asset, which can be bought, sold or transferred among inhabitants of the respective tribes or sub-tribes.

    A Khasadar official’s value does not lie in his individual efficiency but instead, it is in the extent to which he is a representative of his tribe. They are paid through a stipend provided directly to the tribe by the government.

    The Khasadar force was raised for fulfilling collective and territorial responsibilities, including protection of strategic roads. The British government at that time paid allowances to the tribes in name of Khasadari. The political agent of the respective defunct tribal agency was the commanding officer of Khasadar force.

    Most interesting feature of the Khasadari system is that any member of the family could turn up for duty turn by turn and a single individual is not responsible for performing duty. The salary has to be distributed to the family, which often results in financial disputes between family members and clans.

    The force’s main functions are protection of their areas from offences committed by gangs or individuals, provision of escorts to the government officials and protection of state properties, tracing of the whereabouts of and recovery of kidnapped persons, and reporting of incidents.

    An official document revealed that the Khasadar force’s officials were generally ill-disciplined, mostly untrained and loosely organised people, who carried own weapons and had to use own ammunitions.

    Spokesman for the provincial government Ajmal Khan Wazir recently said the government would prepare bill for the regularisation of Khasadar and Levies personnel in merged tribal districts.

    Sources said a large number of Khasadar officials did not have computerised national identity cards, while many of them were either displaced from native areas due to militancy or were abroad.

    Officials said in one district, over 2,000 Khasadar personnel had expired but their salaries were regularly drawn in their names.

    IGP says police to respect tribal values
    PESHAWAR: Inspector General of Police Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Muhammad Naeem Khan said on Thursday the police would perform duty in tribal districts keeping in view the rich values and traditions.


    Speaking to the Qaumi Jirga of Bajaur elite here, the police chief said that the line drawn between Pakhtuns had vanished completely. “And now the rich identity of tribal people will flourish in the new set-up,” he added.

    He said that policing of the people, for the people and by the people would be introduced in the newly merged districts. The police would work in tribal districts in the already existed Levies uniform.

The Provincial Police Officer informed that former tribal belt was torch bearer in respect of good values and rich traditions and the grace and beauty attached with Pakhtun uniform i.e Qamees and Shalwar are matchless and announced that police will perform its duties in the newly merged districts in former Levies uniform.

    They are acting like we occupied some foreign land and now enforcing our police on them. What tribal customs? They're pakhtoons and we are pakhtoons, no change in attitude needed.

    Thanks for guiding me here

    I was gonna ask, do we have detectives in the police force? @ghazi52
