Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) Inam Ghani on Wednesday issued a notification for verification of degrees of all the officers and servicemen of the provincial police force in line with orders of Supreme Court of Pakistan.

The IG issued the notification to get verify degrees of all officers and jawans strictly in accordance with orders issued by the apex court.

According to court orders, the educational credentials of Punjab police officers and personnel will be cross-checked.

The officials said that the Punjab IG has issued a letter in this regard. The Supreme Court has directed all four IGs of provinces to complete the task of degree verification and send a report by the end of April.

The apex court ordered the verification of educational credentials in the unprecedented case where a cop Aijaz Tareen fooled the police department for 32 years.

He was inducted as ASI and recently served as Superintendent of Police (SP) in Sindh after successful promotions throughout the tenure. It has emerged that Tareen used a ‘fake’ appointment letter.
