Now the Federal Board of Revenue tells us that they are going to investigate everyone’s bank accounts. Will they ask this dirty cop where he got his money? They will not. But they will come after you and me.

Its so true. The authorities are all the time after people of limited means and connections. We may not be very sure of this DSPs means of collecting wealth but for sure those who have unfair means are unreachable by the law.

The 'poor' DSP is pretty likely to get a notice from FBR. He is no ASP (equal in rank but inducted through CSS). And the babus who graduate from civil services academy (and there are too many in FBR) have a propensity to look down upon the people who make their way up from lower ranks.

It reminds me of a same story in my area of Bahawalnagar where dacoits broke into the walls of an SHO. 25 lac rupees were reported to be taken by them along with other household......Believe me I was so glad on the crime and the reason was the same you narrated. No one asked the SHO from where he got this much money while his salaray was 20k PKR that time and he had to feed 5 children family.

Yes, the point is why is no one asking the cop where he got the money. Like you, Saima, I am very glad that this heist took place. All cops should be robbed.
Nayyar, mind, this is no politician. Just one hell of a rotten tulla.

Doo you think a thoroughly corrupt system can catch corrupt officials? I thought the bad money is collected at this level and distributed as per "hissa baqadre jussa." Utterly sad. Jimshed

Are you new here in Pakistan? This should not surprise you if you have lived here for some time.
