Centre, Punjab decide not to transfer CCPO Lahore over IGP reservations
LAHORE (City News) – Federal and Punjab government on Tuesday decided not to transfer Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Lahore after differences emerged between him and Inspector General (IG) Punjab Shoaib Dastgir.
According to official of Centre, the appointment of CCPO was made after due consideration and government cannot take decisions against law and merit.
On the other hand, PSP Punjab chapter convened an important meeting in IG office to discuss standoff between the two police officials and convey their reservations to the government.
Police officers also barred CCPO Lahore Umair Shaikh from the meeting and attendants decided to not allow CCPO in any meetings until he is punished. Attendants also vowed to not obey orders of Umair Shaikh if he refuses to obey orders of IG Punjab.
Meanwhile sources have claimed that CCPO Lahore has contacted IG Punjab to resolve difference but IG Punjab Shoaib Dastgir did not respond.
It is pertinent to mention here that IG Punjab did not come to office for second day and schedule of his meeting was also not announced. Sources have claimed differences between IG and the CCPO remain unresolved even after a meeting with Chief Minister of Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar.
CM Usman Buzdar has also confirmed meeting IG Punjab and assured media persons that issue will be resolved today. He said no one is his favorite.
