ISLAMABAD - The federal government has decided to teach a lesson to former Senior Superintendent of Police SSP-Operations Islamabad Muhammad Ali Nekokara, who defied government orders to launch action against Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) on August 30, The Nation has learnt.

A source in the Establishment Division informed that the proceeding of inquiry against former SSP will start from next week and the government has authorised ex-secretary Foreign office Aziz Ahmad as inquiry officer and Establishment Division has issued notification in this regard.

He said that Nekokara would be summoned next week by the inquiry committee to give him a hearing. However, he maintained the government has already decided to take strict action against the defiant officer and the inquiry is mere a formality.

Talking to The Nation, Muhammad Ali Nekokara confirmed that he has been informed that government has initiated an inquiry against him for denying the government order during PTI and PAT sit-ins in federal capital. He said that he is ready to appear before the inquiry committee after receiving summon in this regard.

The federal government had ordered the former SSP operations to launch operation against PTI and PAT workers when they started storming the parliament building during sit-ins in red zone.  Muhammad Ali Nekokara refused to obey the orders due to interference of Deputy Commissioner Islamabad Mujahid Sherdil in police, army and other security agencies’ security strategy. Mujahid Sherdil breached the planned security strategy of red zone and ordered a police constable to fire tear gas shelling on the PTI and PAT marchers. Muhammad Ali Nekokara got disappointed due to attitude of DC and he stepped down from his post. After this step, the government made him Officer on Special Duty (OSD).
