Inam Ghani assumed charge of Inspector General (IG) Punjab Police on Wednesday (today) replacing Shoaib Dastagir.
Inam Ghani – a BS-21 officer of the Police Service of Pakistan, was received by a guard of honor upon his arrival at the Central Police Office (CPO) today.
Prior to this, the newly appointed IG Punjab Police had met Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar to discuss matters pertaining to law and order situation in the province.
The development comes as earlier, federal government removed Shoaib Dastagir as IG Punjab Police on Tuesday.
According to sources, the decision to replace Shoaib Dastagir as IG Punjab Police has been taken after his purported ‘differences’ with Umar Sheikh – Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO).
Meanwhile, on the other hand Additional Inspector General (AIG) Tariq Masood Yasin has also refused to work under the newly appointed IGP citing seniority issues.
In a letter addressed to DIG headquarters, AIG Tariq Masood Yasin has requested the government to transfer him, and has sought professional leave till the matter is resolved and duly addressed.
