SC: A.D. Khawaja to continue functioning as IGP, Sindh

Published

on

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar has stated that IGP Sindh A. D.  Khawaja would keep his post until the trial apropos his removal concludes.

According to details a three-judge SC bench has granted leave of petition of PPPP Govt in Sindh challenging the SHC order dated 7th of September to allow A. D. Khawaja continue as Province’s IGP.

The former PPPP law minister and a senior lawyer Farooq Naek, while pointing out that Constitution guaranteed provincial autonomy, has maintained in the petition  that federal government’s interference in respect of appointment and removal of the IGP violated the basic structure of the Constitution.

It is pertinent to recall here that since A.D. Khawaja was appointed the police chief of Sindh  by federal government a couple of years ago  (in 2016) the PPPP government has been trying to get rid of him. It has been the NGOs like PILER etc that managed to thwart its plans.
