In Pakistan, police officers of all ranks have the authority to stop and search vehicles if they have reasonable suspicion that the vehicle or its occupants are involved in criminal activity or are in possession of illegal items or substances. This includes police constables and other lower rank policemen.
However, it is important to note that the police officers must follow proper procedures and guidelines when conducting a search, and they must have a valid reason for doing so. They are required to identify themselves and explain the reason for the search, and they must not use excessive force or violate the rights of the individuals involved.
If you feel that your rights have been violated during a police search, you have the right to file a complaint and seek legal action against the officers involved.
