Islamabad – The Protection of Pakistan Bill 2014 formally came into effect on Friday after being signed by President Mamnoon Hussain. The new law, which sanctions the security personnel to shoot suspects on sight with the permission of a grade-15 officer, will be effective for two years.

According to the law, the security forces will have to seek permission from an official of law-enforcement agency or a police officer of grade-15 or above to shoot to a suspect on sight. The security personnel will also have to warn the suspect before opening fire on the suspect. In case of killing, a judicial inquiry of the matter would be conducted.
