Three Ghotki SHOs have been suspended and two DSPs, Abdul Haq Bhutto and Izhar Lahori, asked to report to the DIG office for providing a police escort to former Sindh minister Jam Mehtab Dahar.
Dahar was escorted by 10 police vans recently. Show-cause notices were issued to all police officers after a video of the police escort went viral.
The officers were instructed to submit a reply on providing escort to Dahar. They were suspended for failing to provide a valid reason.
A departmental inquiry has been initiated too.
PTI’s Shaharyar Shar had defeated PPP’s Dahar, who has served as former Sindh education and literacy minister, during the election for PS-18 Ghotki in 2018.
