Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, Senator Rabbani said under the proposed amendments, a judicial committee will be put up to probe any incident. The detainees will be produced before courts within 24 hours.

The PPP leader said human rights have been afforded due consideration in the new draft and forces’ power to open firing has also been cut back.

He made it clear that the opposition party would not take over the PPO in its current state.
