IG Sindh dismisses 1,800 illegally appointed cops

KARACHI: Inspector General (IG) Sindh Police Allah Dino Khawaja Wednesday stated that over 1,800 illegally appointed cops have been dismissed.

IG Sindh told the home department’s standing committee, headed by Syed Owais Qadir Shah that the dismissed cops were appointed in the Sindh Reserve Police; adding that 1,100 policemen were given the job in 2012, while 860 were inducted in 2014.

“During our investigation, we learned that 80% of the cops belong to one district and 400 had identical height and chest measurements,” he said, without identifying the district.

“Some senior police officials, after receiving substantial amounts of money, issued fake orders to hundreds of cops who finished their training but unfortunately these cops have now been stopped from performing their duties,” said Syed Owais Qadir Shah, chairperson of the meeting.
