The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)’s provincial government has penned a letter to the Establishment Division and proposed the names of three IG Sindh to pick one of them for the post.
The names of Ghulam Qadir Thebo, Mushtaq Mahar, and Kamran Afzal have been recommended for the post of IG Sindh in the letter.
The names have proposed by the Sindh government after consultation with the federal government.
The letter sent to the Establishment Division through Chief Secretary Sindh.
On Monday, the Sindh High Court (SHC) had issued notices to the federal and provincial authorities on a petition questioning the Sindh government’s decision to remove Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr. Kaleem Imam.
A bench of the SHC had directed them to furnish their comments until the next hearing scheduled for Jan 28.
The bench ruled that Dr. Kaleem Imam will continue as the IG Sindh until the federal government responds to the provincial government’s request for his removal.
The provincial cabinet during an urgent meeting on January 15 had decided to appoint a new IG to replace Dr. Kaleem Imam over alleged failure in maintaining and improving law and order.
It also demanded action against him for allegedly exceeding his authority and making irresponsible statements.
In Sept 2018, Dr. Syed Kaleem Imam was appointed as the inspector general of Sindh police (PSP, BS-21).
