The chief justice has taken suo motu notice of the transfer of Pakpattan DPO Rizwan Gondal and has summoned the DPO and Punjab police IG on August 31.
According to reports, the DPO was transferred after an altercation with Khawar Maneka, the ex-husband of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi.
Police officials under Gondal’s command said personnel tried to stop Maneka at a checkpoint on August 23 but he did not comply. However, they chased his vehicle and managed to intercept him.
An exchange of harsh words ensued. Social media uproar followed as it was widely believed that Gondal was transferred due to his refusal to apoligise to Bushra Bibi’s former husband.
Punjab’s police chief as well as its information minister denied these claims.
