Former CCPO Omar Sheikh will have to face action on application filed against him with different police stations in the city, sources in police department said on Tuesday.
It has been decided to take action on the applications against Umar Sheikh in different police stations. It is worth mentioning here that during his term as CCPO three applications were submitted by police officers against him with different police stations of the city. According to details, the first complaint against former Lahore CCPO Omar Sheikh was filed by former SHO Gujjarpura, the second petition was filed by the reader of DSP Mughalpura, the third petition was filed by a Taiwanese woman against him on the charges of abusing her.
All the three petitions against Sheikh were not acted upon since he himself was CCPO. Now when he is no more CCPO Lahore Police will now approach the Legal Department for action. It should be noted that the dangerous increase in the crime rate in Lahore was due to CCPO Lahore. Omar Sheikh was changed after three months of his posting as CCPO and was replaced by Ghulam Mahmood Dogar as the new CCPO. Omar Sheikh has been appointed as Deputy Commandant PC. The Punjab government has issued a notification to appoint Ghulam Mehmood Dogar as the new CCPO Lahore. In addition, former CCPO Lahore Police Omar Sheikh had issued orders to blacklist 50 officers in Lahore Police. There is no law in the Police Order 2002 to put any officer in the blacklisted category. Officers with excellent records were also included in the blacklist category.
It was decided to annul the move of Omar Sheikh to put the officers in the blacklist category.
