Cases had been registered in the city police station against Arshad Ali and Sons arms dealer for failing to keep the required record in the cash memo. Similarly, the sources said Shoaib and Sons arms dealer had an unregistered repeater in the shop.

They said FIRs were registered against both the dealers under section 13-AO.

ACCOUNTABILITY: Students and teachers have demanded a transparent system of governance in which elected representatives are accountable to the people of their constituencies during their term as members of the parliament.

They were speaking at a function organised by the government degree college Yar Hussain to honour the students who achieved distinction in examinations. Abdul Sattar, former principal of the college, was the chief guest.

They demanded introduction of a system in which the public representatives were accountable to the people during their constitutional tenure.

They said the elected representatives often disappeared from their constituencies after getting votes from the people. They said a mechanism needed to be introduced to make the parliamentarians accountable to the masses in their respective constituencies.Mr Sattar said if adopted such a mechanism would strengthen the budding democratic process in the country on one hand and help in resolving the people’s problems on the other.
