Islamabad - Former Senior Superintendent of Islamabad police Muhammad Ali Nekokara has decided to appeal to Service Tribunal against his punishment of dismissal from services, The Nation has learnt.

The federal government blamed that he disobeyed the official orders and did not launch operation against activists of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek in Red Zone of the federal capital during their sit-ins last year.

The government initiated an inquiry against Nekokara in October last year. Secretary Foreign Affairs was appointed as inquiry officer who recommended to the government to take action against him and dismissed him from services. The government followed inquiry officer’s recommendations and dismissed Nekokara from service. Nekokara claimed that inquiry officer had not provided him opportunity during the hearing to clear his position.

After the government’s decision Nekokara file an appeal before Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as per law against the government’s decision in the first week of May. It is clearly mentioned in service rules that PM must take action on appeal within 90 days. 

Sources informed this scribe that the 90 days would be completed at the end of this week but the PM had not summoned Nekokara for hearing yet.

If the PM does not start hearing of the case then the applicant has the right to file an appeal in Services Tribunal against the decision.

If Services Tribunal rejects the appeal then he can go to the apex court against the government’s decision.

Talking to The Nation, Muhammad Ali Nekokar confirmed that the 90 days of his application to the PM would be completed on July 27, 2015. He said he was innocent and he did not violate the rules and performed his duty under the law and would fight for his right on every legal forum.
