Police reforms will take time: Dr. Shahbaz Gill
Spokesperson Chief Minister Punjab, Dr. Shahbaz Gill has said the role of police is not to torture accused adding that police reforms will take time.

While talking to media, CM Punjab spokesperson said that questions are being raised on the performance of police since a few days.

“Police performance has been exemplary during Muharram. We are working on reforms and it will take some time,” he said.

He added that Punjab has highest rate of incorrect FIR registration thus making it highly difficult to bring reforms into this institution.

“We are planning to form an independent board to access police performance. Also, a Public Relation Officer will be appointed in every police station whose duty would be to stay in touch with common citizens,” Dr. Shahbaz said adding that every DSP and DPO will pledge not to have a torture cell in their police stations.

The spokesperson also criticized opposition by stating that those who manipulated police in the past are now hitting us with allegations.
