IHC moved against transfer of ex-IGP Islamabad
Islamabad – A writ petition challenging the transfer of former Inspector General of Islamabad Khalid Khattak was Friday moved in the Islamabad High Court.
A citizen Ejaz Ahmad moved the petition and nominated Secretary Ministry of Interior and Establishment Division as respondents.
The petitioner adopted in his petition that Khalid Khattak was removed from the office of IG Islamabad police on political basis. He was of the view that former IG police was punished for not implementing the orders of Federal Interior Minister during the sit-in protest of Tehreek-e-Labbiak Ya Rasool Allah at Fiazabad interchange.
He maintained that during the sit-in protest, Khalid Khattak gave priority to high court orders instead of accepting the directives of the minister.
Therefore, he prayed to the court that it may nullify the transfer of Khalid Khattak and appointment of Sultan Azam Taimori as new Inspector General (IG) of Islamabad police.
