Gulalai bashes Sindh, KP police for inability to protect citizens


KARACHI: Disgruntled Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) member MNA Ayesha Gulalai on Friday criticised the police forces of Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, saying that the police have failed to protect the citizens.

Pointing out the ineptness of the KP police, Gulalai said: “Asma Rani’s family went to the police multiple times and asked for an FIR to be registered against the accused. The police did not register the FIR and eventually, she was killed.”

“Similarly, four-year-old Aasma’s murder has not been arrested yet,” she continued to bash the KP police. She said that the police force in KP protects the powerful, and the fact was evident with recent cases in the province.

While referring to the cases of Kohat’s Asma Rani, Mardan’s four-year-old Aasma and Naqeebullah Mehsud, Mashal Khan and others, Gulalai demanded that the cases be referred to military courts in order to dispense speedy justice.

“I have to ask for military courts as I see no other option as the common man does not get justice through the present system,” said the disgruntled PTI member.

She also demanded that judicial reforms should be introduced in order to ensure justice to all.

On the occasion, she also appreciated the chief justice for taking suo motu on the cases.

Referring to the political leaders of PPP and PTI, she said that while Asif Ali Zardari is the thief in Sindh, similarly, Imran Khan is the thief in KP.

“Records of corruption are being broken in KP, the same way Sindh is being looted,” added Gulalai.
