*ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court has announced decision over the appointment of permanent Inspector General of Police in Islamabad.*
*SC turned down on Thursday the government’s request to appoint a new Islamabad police chief.*
Chief Justice Saqib Nisar headed a three-member bench and heard the request filed through the attorney general. In the petition, questions were raised about Islamabad IG Jan Muhammad’s performance.
The AG requested the court to give the government permission to appoint a new IG keeping in mind the current situation.
Justice Nisar, however, said that the court suspended the notification transferring the IG after hearing the interior secretary and establishment division’s replies in the case.
