ECP suspends transfer of Punjab IG ahead of by-polls

Government had appointed Amjad Javed Saleemi as new Punjab IG

Pakistan’s electoral body has suspended the transfer of the incumbent Punjab inspector general of police. 

The government had appointed Amjad Javed Saleemi as the new Punjab IG, replacing Muhammad Tahir after just one month.

The Election Commission of Pakistan said that the transfer violates its directives issued on September 3 over the schedule of the by-polls. The election laws prohibit the government from transferring police officers ahead of elections or by-election. The electoral body has asked the government to submit its reply in two days.

Amjad Javed Saleemi is a grade 22 officer who was serving as the commandant at the National Police Academy. He has served as the interim Sindh IG too. Muhammad Tahir was transferred to Saleemi’s post.

The federal government reshuffled on Monday the senior officials of the National Accountability Bureau as it steps up its drive against corruption.
