CJP Nisar takes suo moto of IGP Islamabad’s transfer

Islamabad (Staff Report): Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Monday took notice of the transfer of Inspector General Police Islamabad Lt (Retd) Jan Muhammad.


Taking the suo moto notice, the CJP Nisar summoned the attorney general and secretary defence to clarify their position regarding the transfer.

“Secretary defence should appear before the court and explain as to why the top cop was transferred,” the top judge remarked. “Rule of law would be established in the country and the institutions would not be weakened,” the CJP clarified.

On Sunday, the IGP Islamabad Jan Muhammad was transferred allegedly for refusing to attend the call of federal minister for science and technology Azam Sawati.

However, the Interior ministry said Sawati had nothing to do with the transfer of IGP rather the summary of his removal was on PM’s table for a couple of weeks.
