LAHORE: Inspector General of Punjab Police retired Capt Arif Nawaz Khan has ordered to enhance security of worship places, churches and educational institutions in particular the institutions running the co-education system across the province.

He directed the police officers concerned to make sure that the panic buttons at all educational institutions especially at A and B category institutions were functioning properly.

The IG said this while addressing a video linl( conference of regional police officers (RPOs) at the Central Police Office here on Wednesday.

He said monitoring of inter-provincial check posts be ensured at any cost and all the vehicles and public passing these check posts should be checked accordingly.

Showing annoyance over the murder of a kidnapped boy inSheikhupura, the IG directed the RPO concerned and the district police officer to arrest the criminals at the earliest.

On the occasion, Operations Assistant Inspector General (AIG) Waqar Abbasi briefed the IG about the arrest of criminals. He claimed that the police had arrested 813 A-category proclaimed offenders (POs) during the last 15 days under the ongoing special campaign launched province-wide against the wanted men and anti-social elements.

The IG warned that the districts would be served with letters of displeasure for showing poor performance regarding the arrest of POs and antisocial elements.

Arif Nawaz directed that the combing, search and intelligence-based operations should be supervised by the DPOs themselves or at least the officers no less than the rank of an assistant superintendent of police or the deputy superintendent of police.
