State sponsored killings?

Sir: It is coming to our notice frequently that the police cops are using their weapon to innocent people just because they are not trained that how to handle the situation on ground.

Recently, a big example of 19-month-old child Ahsan is killed by a police cop in Gulistan-e-Johar. This is not happened first time in Pakistan, we have list of similar cases where police killed innocent people.

In my opinion this particular incident was accord just because police were not trained properly, which I believe and also accepted by Additional IG Sindh during his press conference after this incident. Through your columns I would requested to concerned authority to take a serious action and draft a proper policy related to police training that how to handle ground situation.
