They battled that the Sindh Assembly “can’t present any correction” in Police Order 2002 in light of the fact that like the Criminal Procedure Code, Pakistan Penal Code and Evidence Act, the police law likewise falls inside the domain of Article 142 of the Constitution and the Sindh government couldn’t roll out extraordinary improvements in it.

“The Sindh government has presented monstrous, mala fide changes in unique Police Order 2002 (as it existed on July 13, 2011), practically all of which, under Article 143 of the Constitution are void stomach muscle initio,” the announcement said.

The previous IGPs of the nation proposed the government to ‘adjust’ the Police Order 2002 with the most recent Supreme Court judgment not to ‘further politicize’ the police, denying the general population of Sindh of a reasonable, simply, free and responsible police administration.
