Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Amin Wains on Monday has summoned the affected officers in out-of-turn promotions issue for negotiations.
As many as 85 officers staged sit-in outside Inspector General (IG) Punjab Mushtaq Ahmad Sukhera’s office over the reversion of out-of-turn promotions.
IG Punjab Mushtaq Sukhera made 85 senior police officers including 20 Superintendent of Police (SP) and 65 Deputy Superintendents of Police as Officers on Special Duty (OSD) but the decision was reversed as Supreme Court (SC) declared the promotions as illegal.
On the other hand, victim officers’ lawyer Ali Zafar said that the promotion orders of policemen have always been carried as per the law.
Sources told that these officers had captured wanted dacoits, murderers, terrorists, smugglers and other criminals.
According to new notification issued by the IGP, the officers have not only been removed from their positions but have also been replaced by their colleagues.
The affected officers have announced to hold sit-in against the reversion of the decision. They said that the higher administration should appreciate their hard work.
