KARACHI: A notification by the Sindh government has been challenged in the the Sindh High Court.
The SHC has approved for immediate hearing an appeal challenging the Sindh government’s removal of IG Kaleem Imam.
The petitioner, a renowned social worker, Jibran Nasir called the government’s move illegal and unconstitutional. He also argued that it was against the Police Rules, 2019.
The court approved the petition on Monday.
The petitioner has asked the court to declare the move illegal.
The Sindh cabinet recently approved the removal of IG Imam and sent three names to the federal government for his replacement. Sindh says it has compelling reasons to remove Imam, including a lack of accountability, rising crime index and rising number of civilians killed in police crossfire.
