The Interior Ministry had asked Jan Muhammad to return to the country immediately, and resume charge as Islamabad Inspector General of Police (IGP). IGP has return to the country after attending a course in Kuala Lumpur. The Supreme Court had taken suo motu notice of the matter suspended the transfer notification issued by Government.
Earlier today, the federal government filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking the the appointment of a new Islamabad inspector general of police (IGP) in light of the current security situation, however, the chief justice rejected the government’s plea.
“Instead of appointing a new IGP, give an additional charge to someone else,” Justice Nisar said and asked, “Had we not suspended the decision of the IGP’s appointment, what would you have done?”
Inspector General of Police (IGP), Islamabad, Jan Muhammad, was removed and directed to report to the Establishment Division for allegedly refusing to take action on the complaint by Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Azam Swati’s son and failing to pick calls from the federal minister.
Swati’s son filed an FIR at the Shehzad Town Police Station against several people for allegedly letting their animals into the former’s fields. On being stopped, the suspects attacked the Swati’s son and quarrelling with his servants, snatching weapons and held them hostage.
According to a notification issued by the Establishment Division, IGP Jan Muhammad was transferred and ordered to report to the Division until further orders.
Reacting to the alleged arrest of a minor, Azam Swati and Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry quickly rejected the reports and clarified that police had not arrested any minor Ministry of Interior clarified that IGP’s transfer was due for over a week and the minister had nothing to do with it.
