Former Punjab IG’s Transfer Challenged In LHC

LAHORE: A man on Friday filed a petition in Lahore High Court (LHC) challenging transfer of Former Inspector-General (IG) of Punjab Amjad Javed Saleemi.

The petition stated that the IG was transferred only after six months of taking charge whereas the duration of the posting period is of three years as per the police orders issued back in 2002.

“Current government has changed three IGs in Punjab in only eight months. Considering the Supreme Court’s decision, transfers cannot take place without any solid reason”, the petition stated.

The petition, furthermore, pleaded to term the step of transferring IG as ‘outlawed’.
