DIG dismisses seven officials in Lahore
LAHORE, April 12: Deputy Inspector General of Police (operations) Rao Sardar Ali Khan on Tuesday issued dismissal orders of four inspectors, including a serving station house officer, two sub-inspectors and an assistant sub-inspector on various criminal charges.
The DIG issued the orders after finding unsatisfactory answers the officials gave against different charges during an orderly room.
Former Ichhra SHO Inspector Tahir Zainul Abidin, former Green Town SHO Inspector Muzamil Husain and SI Saeed Anwar, who also remained Green Town SHO, were dismissed from service for misusing authority, implicating innocent citizens in cases, blackmailing them and receiving bribe.
Three officials registered several fake cases against the victims of Canal Motors scandal and kept them blackmailing.
Badamai Bagh SHO Inspector Subtain Shah and SI Mushtaq Tariq were fired from service for patronising land-grabbers, misusing authority, failing to control crime and indulging in corruption.
Both of them received Rs150,000 from a group which illegally occupied the plot of a citizen, Arif.
Inspector Muhammad Rafique and ASI Asghar Ali were sacked for releasing a murder accused, Iftikhar, after receiving bribe.
Iftikhar was detained by the officials in connection with a murder case registered with the Samanabad police.
