Eleven months have passed but the police are still clueless about the dacoits who had fired indiscriminate shots on Kasur Press Club (KPC) president Haji Sharif Mehr during a robbery.

The police failure has raised serious concerns among people and notables belonging to all walks of life, especially the mediamen. They flayed the police for being least bothered to arrest the culprits.

Talking to The Nation, KPC chairman Ajmal Shad questioned police performance. He said that the police failure to arrest dacoits has created a sense of insecurity among journalists.

KPC finance secretary Mehr Ashiq urged the police to make all-out efforts for arrest of the culprits. He stressed the need for considering mediamen 's concerns.

Emra vice president Imran Faizi termed the attack on the KPC president an attack on the journalist community.

Mediamen urged the police higher-ups to take effective steps for arrest of the robbers. They also demanded Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif take notice of the police failure.
