Online newspaper Pakistan Today reports that mediation committees will be formed in all police stations in the country’s capital to resolve problems of the citizens on priority basis and promote friendly policing. Human rights officials will also be appointed in the police stations to change the ‘thana culture’ and ensure non-discriminatory investigations of cases.
Each five-person committee will include non-political persons, lawyers, educationists, traders etc. Each committee will be led by a station house officer (SHO), who will be human rights officer as well.
The mediation committees are aimed at settling minor fights and conflicts between rival groups and avoiding registration of small disputes.
