Lahore: 2 SHOs suspended for links with land mafia
LAHORE: Deputy Inspector General (Operations) Rao Sardar Ali on Tuesday suspended from service two SHOs and an in-charge (investigation) for their alleged connections with land mafia.
The DIG also directed the Saddar Division SP to hold an inquiry into the similar allegations levelled against five other police officials.
They are: Muslim Town and Wahdat Colony SHOs Shoaib Khan, Rana Asghar Ali, Wahdat Colony SIs Muhammad Iqbal, Badar Mehdi, and Faraz Ahmad.
Green Town SHO Muzammil Husain, Ichhra SHO Tahir Zainul Abidin and Wahdat Colony In-charge (Investigation) Saeed Anwar were suspended from service on the basis of evidence against them following an initial inquiry conducted by the DIG (Operations) at the office of Saddar Division SP on Tuesday.
The probe was launched when a local Rana Umair informed Punjab Additional IG Chaudhry Tanvir that a man identified as Malik Siddique with the connivance of some eight police officials had looted several citizens.
The victims presented dozens of fake FIRs which, they claimed, were registered against them by the police officials.
