DPO Pakpattan transfer case: New developments surface in Supreme Court

*ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court has rejected former Punjab IG Kaleem Imam’s report in the Pakpattan DPO transfer case.*

A new investigation into the matter was ordered during the hearing on Monday morning.

Chief Justice Saqib Nisar told Kaleem, who is currently posted as Sindh’s police chief, that the court will decide whether he worked honestly.

You have wasted your chance, the top judge said. He said that the former police chief was not able to produce Ahsan Jameel Gujjar in court.

The police have destroyed the institution to protect a single man, he observed, adding that it is giving priority to VIPs.

Kaleem’s report exonerated Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar of any wrongdoing and said he simply played mediator during the meeting between Gujjar and DPO Rizwan Gondal. The report stated that the CM had arranged the meeting so Gujjar could express his concerns.

The report also gave Gujjar a clean chit. It said he did not commit any offence and that he had offered an apology for his role in the matter.
