ISLAMABAD: The federal government has decided on Wednesday to hand over the important post to IG Sindh Kaleem Imam to avoid the issue making further controversial.
This was decided in the meeting between Sindh Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Kaleem Imam and Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday in Islamabad.
During the meeting, IGP Imam briefed PM Imran regarding the law and order situation in the province.
On Monday, after days of controversy over the appointment of the Sindh’s top cop, the Centre and the Sindh government agreed to transfer IGP Imam, and appoint another police chief to replace him.
The decision was made during a meeting between the premier and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah at the Governor House in Karachi.
“The confrontation between the political government and police chief in any province will not yield good results, therefore we should consider whatever the Sindh government has recommended,” official sources quoted the prime minister as saying, adding that the issue of the appointment of the new police chief would be resolved soon.
