SC gives one week to Sindh to appoint IGP


KARACHI: The Supreme Court (SC) has given one week to the government of Sindh for the appointment of Sindh Police IG, ordering that the notification in this regard be presented before it within a week. 
An SC bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Tassaduq Hussain Jillani issued the directive while hearing the case regarding implementation of apex court orders in Karachi violence case. The chief justice inquired from Sindh advocate general what has been done with regard to the appointment of Sindh Police IG, to which he said one week was given by the court for induction of the Sindh IG. Justice Amir Hani Muslim remarked, “One day was allowed rather than one week”, and asked if the IG has been appointed or not. 
Attorney General of Pakistan Aslam Butt told the court three names were sent by the federation to provincial government for appointment of Sindh IG. However, no reply has been received from the Sindh government in this regard. AG Sindh said the provincial government had also sent three names to the federation in this regard. He said Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah does not agree to the names sent by the federation because they cannot maintain law and order in the province. Irritated, Justice Amir Hani Muslim remarked, “What are you talking about! Can one person maintain law and order? Give us the name of that one person who can establish peace and we will recommend to the federation to appoint him as IG.
