Answering a question, Nisar said it was extremely sad that an `honest’ Sindh Police IG, A.D. Khawaja had been sent on a forced leave by the provincial government without any consultation from federal government. The Minister also spoke about Abbottabad Inquiry Commission and said he would ask the cabinet to reveal findings of the report.
“The Abbott abad raid was the biggest attack on country’s sovereignty in last 69 years,” he said while replying to another question. A final decision over the Abbottabad Commission rests with the Prime Minister. Answering another question, the Minister said scores of citizens were burnt to death in Karachi’s Baldia factory for money and added the credit should be given to the government for bringing main culprit from Thailand to Pakistan for investigation. Completed basic training of first ever Rapid Response Force of ICT Police in record five months and its passing out parade was held today.
Everybody who attended the parade, including the Chief guest Ch. Nisar Ali Khan, rated it as good as of a level in any Civil or Military passing out parades ever seen by them.
A great milestone achieved under supervision of W/IGP Tariq Masood Yaseen.
More over a group of 35 retired IGs of Police Service of Pakistan have expressed concern over IG Sindh A.D. Khawaja’s forced leave and have labeled the move by the provincial government as ‘unjustified’.
The retired IGs said that the way the Sindh government sent an honest and professional officer on forced leave for not bowing down to the illegitimate wishes of some influential persons was unjustified.
The group has appealed to the Prime Minister and Chief Minister Sindh to not allow the forced transfer.
Among the IGs are Syed Masud Shah, former IG Punjab and KP; Afzal Ali Shigri, former IG Sindh; Tariq Parvez, former DG FIA; Shaukat Javed, former IG Punjab; Tariq Khosa, former IG Balochistan; and Iftikhar Ahmed, former IG Islamabad.
