Seven ‘inefficient’ SHOs suspended: Sindh Interior Minister
Sindh Interior Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal confirmed on Wednesday that as many as seven SHOs have been suspended today for their failure to control crime in their respective police domains.
Speaking in a press conference Siyal said: “situation will not get better until punishments are not given,” adding, “The suspended SHOs were working in their professional capacity from last three months.”
The provincial interior minister said that government is putting efforts to bring betterment in the police department. He added that his office is always open for the public.
Sindh government has withdrawn powers of Inspector General of Police (IGP) AD Khawaja to decide the transfers and postings of senior police officials in the province. Approved by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, the order empowers the Services, General Administration and Coordination Department of the provincial government to issue the transfers and postings of SPs, SSPs and equivalent officers with direct approval of the chief minister.
“Chief Minister Sindh has been pleased to approve that the transfers and postings of Superintendents of Police (BS-18)/ Senior Superintendents of Police (BS-19) and equivalent shall be issued by the Services, General Administration and Coordination Department,” reads the order issued by provincial Chief Secretary Rizwan Memon.
According to the notification, the order is in accordance with Rule 9(2) of the Sindh Civil Servants (Appointment, Promotion & Transfer) Rules, 1974.
The government’s order of August 9, 2016, whereby powers were delegated to the IGP for transfers and postings of SPs and SSPs “is hereby cancelled/withdrawn”, reads the order.
Issues between the provincial government and IGP Khawaja surfaced last year, when the latter was sent on ‘forced leave’ in December.
