Former DPO Pakpattan Rizwan Gondal in hot waters
ISLAMABAD - DPO Pakpattan Rizwan Gondal lands in hot waters as the departmental inquiry report reveals that inspector general of Punjab and regional police officer did not ask former Pakpattan DPO Rizwan Gondal to seek an apology from Khawar Maneka.
As per the inquiry report prepared by Punjab Additional IG Abu Bakr Khuda Baksh over the transfer of Gondal, neither Punjab IGP Kaleem Imam nor the RPO ordered the transfer.
It states that the issue between Khawar and Gondal was created over two incidents that took place on different dates – one on August 5 the other on August 23.
However, the situation was further complicated following the August 23 incident in which police tried to intercept Khawar at a checkpoint but he did not stop. The police chased him down and asked to check his vehicle, but Khawar refused. The report also states that Khawar phoned Gondal on that day.
The enquiry report is based on 11 pages for which 17 police officers were probed, including the former DPO.
