ISLAMABAD: The capital police have started the process to separate investigation and operations wings.

The police said they were reorganising the investigation wing into a specialised and dedicated workforce. In this regard, a standard order for reorganising the investigation wing was issued from the office of the inspector general of police (IGP) with the signature of Assistant Inspector General of Police (Establishment) Kamran Adil.

The wing will be primarily responsible for investigation of heinous cases.

The wing will work under the supervision of the deputy inspector general of police (DIG) operations. Senior superintendent of police (SSP) investigation will head the wing and will directly report to the DIG operations.

In this regard, a grade-19 post of SSP has been created to head the investigation wing. The SSP will be assisted by two SPs, each looking after the eastern and western parts of the capital.

The wing will comprise specialised units, including Anti-Car Lifting Cell, Criminal Intelligence Agency and any other unit constituted by the SSP investigation.

The SSP may constitute a special investigation team for important cases, including missing persons and other heinous cases.

The collection of evidence will be ensured through a forensic unit.

The investigation wing will maintain an electronic database as required under the rules.
