Police Statistics for Karachi..

as reported by them and reported here.

Read the complete article for more info, heres what caught my eye…

The Capital City Police killed 304 dacoits in 1,592 encounters from January 2002 to July 2006, in which 9,254 bandits were arrested while 106 police personnel lost their lives and 310 sustained injuries.

Of these 1,592 police encounters, only one was doubtful while rest of 1,591 proved genuine after the probe and inquiries.

DIG Administration of Capital City Police Karachi, Zafar Farooqui, said this while addressing a seminar entitled “Police Encounters: Allegations and Reality,” organised by Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF) at its Vicky Zeitlin Media Library on Thursday.

“During the same period, a total of 226 cases were registered against police officials under Police Order 2002 while 59 cases were registered against them on orders from the courts for violating rules and regulations, misconduct and negligence,” he said.

And on the issue of ‘fake encounters

DIG Farooqui rejected the allegation that most encounters were fake, saying that hardly one per cent of such encounters could be termed “fake or illegal” adding that probe has been ordered to look into such cases.

“Like in the recent encounter in which the police claimed to have killed notorious dacoit Mashooq Brohi, IGP Sindh had ordered an inquiry into the matter and a criminal case was registered against some officials involved in it,” he said.

Interestingly… on the same day, another article was also published in the same paper bashing the police service for its investigative skills.

Arrest of criminals, is not anything, but none of the investigative agencies have explored in-depth to reach the masterminds and financers of terrorist activities.

When Syed Kamal Shah, was the Provincial Police Officer (PPO) Sindh, Intelligence Collection Unit (ICU) had been established at the police station level. Those ICUs are very active even now, as whenever and wherever construction of a house starts, area police reach there and to collect their share.
