Islamabad (Staff Report): Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Thursday took suo motu notice of the transfer of Pakpattan District Police Officer (DPO) Rizwan Gondal.
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by the CJP will hear the case on Friday, August 31.
The top judge had summoned Rizwan Umar Gondal, Inspector General Punjab Police, and the Regional Police Officer in personal capacity.
Gondal was reportedly transferred after he intercepted Khawar Maneka, former husband of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s wife, for speeding.
According to media reports, the personnel tried to stop Khawar Maneka at a checkpoint on August 23 but he did not stop. However, they chased his vehicle and managed to intercept him.
Maneka, a senior official of Customs department, misbehaved with the police and used abusive language.
On Friday, Punjab CM Usman Buzdar summoned Gondal and asked him to go to Pakpattan to seek an apology from Khawar.
However, the DPO refused to obey the orders, saying the police was not at fault over intercepting him.
Buzdar also instructed the DPO and Regional Police Officer (RPO) to resolve the matter.
