Karachi Police has established its first Crime Scene Investigation Unit in the provincial capital. The city police chief, Ghulam Nabi Memon, inaugurated the facility on Saturday.
Speaking to media about the investigation unit, Ghulam Nabi Memon said that the new unit will help in the collection of evidence from the crime scene.
It has gadgets and instruments that meet international standards. They will help officers investigate any case.
Memon noted that previously, the police failed to prove many cases in courts due to a lack of evidence and hopes that the situation will change now.
Previously, we didn’t have the equipment of international standards, due to which, many pieces of evidence were already lost before the officers had reached the scene.
The unit is equipped with a modern system that functions for 24 hours. The system will remain in contact with the operational police parties throughout the city and will help them reach the crime scene at the earliest.
He highlighted that the first unit was opened at the Clifton police station, while 12 more high-end investigation units will be established in various police stations across the city.
