Sindh police officers are revolting against the Pakistan army over Sindh police IGP abduction. The investigation is underway.
Local politicians alleged that Sindh province’s top police official, IGP Mushtaq Ahmed Mahar, had been abducted on October 19 by paramilitary troops, who coerced him into signing an order to arrest Safdar. Pakistan’s army chief ordered an investigation into allegations that army troops kidnapped a provincial police chief.
In response to that, all police officers of Sindh Police applied for leave in protest of the humiliation faced by the IGP. They posted a series of tweets supporting the Sindh police and all the ranks in the police officers.
Following the probe's announcement, Sindh police said in a tweet that Mahar had decided to defer his leave request and ordered his officers to set aside their leave applications, pending the probe's conclusion.
Following leave applications, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of late former PM Benazir Bhutto and former president Asif Ali Zardari, spoke to Gen. Bajwa and Lt. Gen. Hameed, asking them to probe the circumstances surrounding the arrest of Safdar.
The Sindh government, under which the Sindh police operate, said it had not ordered Safdar’s arrest and that the police had been pressured into taking action.
According to News 18, Karachi is burning with shootouts between civil and military bodies after the army took over the provincial metropolis and the control of all police stations and government buildings.
On October 21, Sindh Bar Council sends a resolution asking the Chief Justice to take Suo-Moto notice of the abduction of IG Sindh by Rangers and Intelligence agency.
Hence, Sindh police are in open revolt against the Pakistan army over IGP's abduction.
