A man who was shot dead by the police in Karachi's SITE earlier this month was innocent, according to a police inquiry report. Sultan Nazeer was shot dead by the police during an exchange of fire on January 3. The police claimed Nazeer was involved in a robbery but his family refuted the claims. They said he worked as a waiter at a restaurant in Saddar and was also a student. Neighbours and Nazeer's family then gathered outside the SITE A police station and staged a protest. Following this, the Keamari SSP promised a transparent inquiry into the case. The recently published report confirmed Nazeer's innocence. "The bullet hit him when he was between the police and the robbers," it said. A case has been registered against two policemen working at Karachi’s SITE A police station. They have been detained and are being questioned.

    police is a corruption tank
    it must be drained and fresh educated people from good families must be inducted into police and higher offices.
    same goes for all government institutions.
