Sindh police constitute new unit to end coppers’ corruption, misconduct


KARACHI: The Sindh police have decided to form a new unit within the police department under the supervision of an Additional Inspector General (AIG) ranked official in order to introduce accountability and transparent policing in the province, ARY News reported Tuesday.

The Internal Accountability Unit (IAU) in the police replaces an older and now quashed post of AIG Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD), and the senior cop Farhat Junejo will be heading the newly formed unit.

Higher echelons of Sindh Police have confirmed the development and said the inception of new post and scrapping of the old one have been approved by the provincial government.

A letter to this effect will soon be out by the Home Department of Sindh to notify the AIG to oversee IAU whose purpose is to address the complaints made against the coppers and to end the corruption in the department.
