He said that military side has done its job and now the Sindh government should set an example with regards to how the police offices resorted to a sort of mutiny and fix the responsibility how it all happened. It should also check why the FIR was not registered initially by the relevant SHO, which led to a resentment and reaction from public and pressure came on the Rangers and they approached high official of police to sort out this issue. The minister was of the opinion that the Sindh government should ensure that discipline is maintained by all and the IG also conduct an inquiry regarding his officers.
