Police department of district Multan is in the process of implementing an effective and multi-pronged anti cattle rustling strategy. The department has recovered many stolen cattle in the recent crackdowns. The key features of the recovery strategy are as below:
  • Preventive detention of rassagirs (patrons)
  • Publishing a black book of habitual cattle rustlers
  • Establishing police pickets at all district entry-exit points
  • Monitoring of transportation of cattle within and outside the district from sunset to sunrise

In order to make this strategy a success, police requires an effective participation and feedback from the rural community. Police department of district Multan understands that internet is not a very effective medium for reaching out to the people in the villages. We do not intend to employ the traditional and cumbersome method of theekri-pehra (volunteer watchmen) to prevent this crime, which causes great inconvenience to the people.
