Punjab government decides to sack top police brass of the province

LAHORE - In light of the Joint investigation team’s report submitted to the Punjab chief minister on Tuesday, the government immediately decided to remove the Punjab additional IG and CTD additional IG from their posts.

This was confirmed by Punjab Law Minister Raja Basharat in a press conference held after the investigation report was submitted to the Punjab CM.

Basharat also said that an inquiry has been launched against CTD’s DIG, SP and DSP in Punjab while a challan will be issued for five other officials of the CTD.

This is a test case for the Punjab government, the law minister said, adding that the Sahiwal shooting case will be made an example by the government.

The people of the province have kept trying to get justice in the past, he said, adding that an inquiry against officials has not been carried out within 72 hours of any incident in Punjab’s history.

According to the JIT’s initial report, CTD has been held responsible for the killing of Khalil and his family in the Sahiwal shooting.
