SHC orders AD Khawaja to continue IG's post

Karachi (Staff Report): The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday ordered to extend A.D. Khawaja’s service as Inspector General of Police (IGP) while asking for a copy of the decision made in this regard by the Sindh Cabinet.

A day earlier, the Sindh Cabinet had said it would back the decision to 'surrender' A.D. Khawaja's services to the federal government.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah appointed Additional IG Sardar Abdul Majeed Dasti as Khawaja's replacement as provincial police chief during the cabinet meeting.

Earlier this week, the SHC had suspended a notification issued by the Sindh government on April 1 for Khawaja's removal.

The SHC had also suspended Dasti's 'promotion' as acting IGP as well.
