Sindh High Court announces verdict on transfer of IG Kalim Imam
KARACHI – Sindh High Court announces verdict on transfer of Inspector General of Police Kalim Imam .
The Sindh High Court (SHC) has Monday barred the Sindh government to transfer Inspector General of Police Dr Kaleem Imam.
According to details, the SHC issued a stay order against provincial cabinet’s decision of transferring Dr Kaleem Imam and forwarded notices to both the federal and the Sindh governments.
Furthermore, the court directed both parties to submit their replies till next hearing. The SHC remarked that the provincial government apparently did not consult the federation before removing the IG.
The court directed the Sindh government to confer with the federal government over the matter according to the law.
It is pertinent here to mention that the provincial government provided reasons for Dr Imam’s removal as his alleged “non-cooperation with the Sindh government, and failure to implement directives issued from the CM House,” and frequent absence in key meetings of the government.
The Sindh government, after approval of the provincial cabinet to remove Dr Kaleem, had forwarded three names, including Ghulam Qadir Thebo, Mustaq Meher and Kamran Fazal to the Centre for the appointment of new IG of the province.
