LAHORE The presentations prepared by the big guns of the provincial police for the consumption of the top brass of the Punjab government may be quite satisfying but the fact remains that crime rate has alarmingly increased during the first 60 days of the year 2011, official documents revealed. The gangsters continued with their killing spree under the nose of 1,70,000 - strong police force - across the province, as 15 people were killed on daily basis. The analysis of the confidential documents revealed that IG Punjab Javed Iqbal has badly failed to break the status quo of police department as the change of high command has strongly disappointed the masses so far. The comparative study of these documents exposed the actual police performance across the Punjab besides giving a pathetic look of deteriorating situation of law and order. On the other side, critics castigated the role of big guns of police department especially the IG Punjab saying since his influx in Punjab, he was stuck to his office instead of paying surprise visits to the far flung districts and to know about the ailing condition of the victims. They say despite the hectic efforts of the Punjab chief minister to control crime and maintain the situation of law and order, the IG Punjab Javed Iqbal is yet to give his performance. According to official statistics, a copy of which is also available with TheNation, over 880 innocent people have been killed the first two months of the year 2011 while 815 people were killed during the corresponding period of the last year 2010. Ironically, the provincial capital has again topped with total 96 murders; Faisalabad with 85 while 60 people were killed in Rawalpindi. The documents showed the crime rate has increased alarmingly in Gujranwala, Rawalpindi, Chakwal, Sargodha, Mianwali, Faisalabad, Jhang, Chiniot, Multan, Khanewal, Vehari, Sahiwal, Okara, Muzaffargarh and Bahawalnagar. The statistics further showed that 94 persons were killed in Sheikhupura region as 42 in Sheikhupura district, 20 in Nankana Sahib and 32 people were killed in Kasur. The hardened criminals killed 48 people in Gujranwala, 16 in Hafizabad, 28 in Gujrat, 22 in Mandi Bahauddin, 22 in Sialkot and 11 in Narowal. About 60 persons were killed in Rawalpindi, 8 in Attock, 6 in Jehlum and 17 in Chakwal while 36 were gunned down in Sargodha, 9 in Khushab, 16 in Mianwali and two in Bhakhar district. Overall, the Faisalabad region topped the list of murders as 85 people were killed in Faisalabad, 21 in Jhang, 13 in Toba Tek Singh and 18 killed in Chiniot. The bandits shot dead 30 in Multan, 8 Lodhran, 21 Khanewal and 20 in Vehari while 26 were killed in Sahiwal, 17 Pakpattan and 28 in Okara. The provincial police seemed to do nothing in far flung districts of the southern Punjab as 11 were killed in DG Khan, 10 in Rajanpur, 19 in Muzaffargarh, 6 in Layyah, 19 in Bahawalpur, 19 in Bahawalnagar and 20 persons lost their lives in Rahim Yar Khan. The officialdom of the Punjab Police further failed to give any breakthrough in office work as only 290 cases were challaned, 13 were cancelled, and four were untraced while 575 cases were still under investigation. According to the available figures, the Punjab Police somehow managed to apprehend only 968 people out of total 2,361 persons. The IG Punjab said, The number of killings was 815 last year. Increasing intolerance besides many other social factors are responsible.
