LAHORE – Punjab Inspector General of Police Muhammad Habib-ur-Rehman posted AIG Administration Sohail Akhtar Sukhera as Lahore SSP (Operations), while Capt (r) Sohail Chaudhary has been posted as Lahore CTO, a spokeswoman said on Thursday.

Similarly, Ahmed Kamal has been posted as AIG Administration with immediate effect. It may be noted here that Sukhera was posted as Lahore SSP a couple of month ago, but owing to pressure from Lahore CCPO Aslam Tareen and Punjab Chief Secretary Nasir Khosa, the orders were cancelled on the same day.

“Police quarters believe Sukhera maneuvered the situation and assured his complete subordination to the Lahore CCPO, after which the latter approved his posting as Lahore SSP,” sources said. Police record shows at least 36 gangsters and desperate criminals were gunned down on Sukhera’s orders during his posting as ASP and SP in Daska and Lahore.

Sohail Chaudhary has completed two tenures as DPO in two separate districts of Punjab before his posting as Lahore CTO.
