ISLAMABAD: In defiance of the orders of the Interior Ministry, Sultan Azam Taimuri has refused to take the additional charge of SSP operations.
In the aftermath of F8 terror attacks, the interior minister had ordered the transfer of Islamabad IG Sikandar Hayat and SSP Dr Rizwan. On the order of the interior minister, additional charge of Islamabad IG was given to DIG Khalid Khattak and SSP operations to Taimuri.
However, Taimuri has refused to take the additional charge and has adopted the stance that Khattak is his junior and he has been given the charge of IG, thus he cannot work under him and would not take the charge of SSP operations.
However, the government has also not yet decided whether to send National Crisis Management Cell (NCMC) DG Tariq Lodhi to the Establishment Division or return him to IB. The decision will be taken after the return of the prime minister.
Meanwhile, the city administration of Rawalpindi has devised safety plans to provide comfort and ease to the motorists plying on Murree Road.
Earlier, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had directed the authorities to make the Murree Road danger-free and comfortable for the residents of the city, as a large number of traffic accidents were recorded recently on the same route due to congestion and violation of rules by the drivers.
In this regard, a meeting was held under the supervision of Rawalpindi Commissioner Zahid Sayeed with police and city administration, and it was decided to ensure the safety of the public. The city administration would construct safety walls, speed breakers, and canvas mirror on the road as well as discouraging and banning the old public transport vehicles.
On the other hand, as many as 239 constables of the Rawalpindi police have been promoted as head constables. Regional Police Officer (RPO) DIG Omar Hayat Lalika has approved the recommendations made by the promotion board and signed the orders of promotion. Notification in connection with the promotion of the constables has been issued.
The promotion cases of 11 constables who have been served show-cause notices or are facing charges have been withheld.
