Officers involved in IG Sindh’s abduction removed from posts on recommendation of army court
RAWALPINDI: The officers responsible for abduction of IG Sindh have been removed from their posts on recommendation of army’s court of inquiry on Tuesday.
“Action against the officers would be taken at the GHQ for violating the code of conduct,” the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said regarding the incident that took place in the backdrop of desecration of the Quaid’s Mausoleum.
The army’s court of inquiry has been completed on reservations of the IG Sindh. The inquiry into abduction of the IG Sindh was conducted on order of Chief of Armcy Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
The circumstances and public reaction led to the officers to react emotionally, however they would be held accountable for that, said the media wing of armed forces.
“The army wants that no misunderstanding takes place between the security institutions,” it added.
Rangers and other law enforcement agencies have jointly maintained law and order in Karachi. Due to which, terrorism in Karachi has reduced by 95 percent, target killing by 98 percent, extortion by 99 percent and kidnapping for ransom by 98 percent in more than seven years.
On Oct 19, the Sindh government had relayed Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader and former Sindh governor Muhammad Zubair that Rangers abducted the Inspector General of Sindh Police to force him to arrest captain (retd) Safdar.
PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif had informed through a tweet that her husband was arrested in Karachi. She had said that Muhammad Safdar was arrested by breaking the door of her hotel room.
