KP Assembly Speaker, IGP lock horns over SC order


Relations between Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Assembly Speaker Mushtaq Ahmed Ghani and Inspector General of Police Dr Sanaullah Abbasi have soured as the latter has refused to toe the line of the former who is reportedly not in the favour of the implementation of Supreme Court (SC) order in the case of ‘illegal promotions’ made in the police force.

Dozens of non-deserving police personnel in KP had been promoted at the cost of eligible ones.

And when those who qualified for the senior posts approached the Supreme Court, the latter ordered the demotion of the police personnel who had been promoted in violation of the rules and regulations.

However, the apex court’s order was not implemented.
Sources said that soon after the news broke, KP Assembly Speaker Mushtaq Ghani summoned the IGP Dr Sanaullah Abbasi in his chamber in the presence of police personnel winning promotions.—INP
