A senior police official has been removed from service after it was found out that he was allegedly sharing sensitive information with terrorists.
According to a Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) notification, Syed Ali Raza, an official of the Sectarian Terrorists Intelligence Group (STIG), has been dismissed from service “with immediate effect” on Tuesday from the office of Additional Inspector General of Police of CTD Sindh.
Raza was accused of sharing confidential information by a political party worker Umair Hassan Siddiqui, who was arrested from Muttahida Qaumi Movement headquarters Nine Zero during a raid by Rangers last year.
Siddiqui made the allegations in front of a joint investigation team, according to the notice. Raza was summoned for questioning but he failed to appear. Instead, a written reply was submitted which was deemed “unsatisfactory”, leading to the termination of his service.
