possible for any SHO to understand crime dynamics of a police station and deliver unless he was given at least three months at a station.

Another SHO said anybody could visit the police stations to see the names of SHOs and their short tenures.

He said the Nawab Town Police Station has seen nine SHOs in the last 14 months.

DIG (Operations) Muhammad Tahir Rai, however, said he changed a few SHOs for inefficiency and others voluntarily surrendered and applied for leaves after he pushed them for performance against rising crime.

He rejected the impression that the SHOs were being transferred and posted on political pressures.

He admitted that there was shortage of efficient and well-reputed inspectors in the force and police had to rely on available stuff.
