LAHORE:  Punjab law minister Muhammad Basharat Raja has Thursday chaired a law and order session for the province and underlined the need to eradicate crimes against women by taking the complaints from women seriously, ARY News reported.

Law Minister of Punjab huddled the divisional commissioners and regional officers of police in the session today. The minister told the session that Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar is not happy with steps taken to protect women from sexual and domestic crimes.

Take seriously each and every complaint a woman files even if you suspect it to be malicious, he said.

Lodge the FIR even if it’s based on fabricated events, we will deal strictly with the perjurer later.

Let’s punish those involved in crimes against women, Raja Basharat said.
