Top court reinstates CCPO Lahore Ghulam Mehmood Dogar

Islamabad (Staff Report/Agencies): The Supreme Court has reinstated Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Lahore Ghulam Mehmood Dogar.

A three-member bench headed by Justice Ijazul Ahsan on Friday heard CCPO Dogar’s petition, challenging the Federal Service Tribunal’s two-member bench decision to suspend an order judgment passed by FST’s other judge.

Dogar’s lawyer Abid Zuberi told the apex court that a two-member bench of the tribunal cannot suspend another bench’s decision, adding that the government’s review petition was also pending before the tribunal.

Justice Mazahar Naqvi asked how can the high court say that the constitutional petition is not worth hearing.

Lawyer Zuberi replied that the provincial government does not want to release CCPO.

The top court issued order to reinstate Dogar as Lahore CCPO and adjourned the hearing for an indefinite period of time.
