SC suspends transfer order of Ghulam Mahmood Dogar as Lahore CCPO

The Supreme Court on Friday suspended the transfer order of Ghulam Mahmood Dogar as the Lahore capital city police officer (CCPO).

The top court has forwarded the matter to another bench of the apex court.

A three-member bench of the SC headed by Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan took up Dogar’s plea against the December 2022 decision of the Federal Service Tribunal (FST).

A day earlier, Justice Ahsan heard the case and directed the Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja to provide all the records regarding Dogar’s transfer.

The court had also reconstituted the bench and added Justice Munib Akhtar to it.

During today’s hearing, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) secretary said the Punjab government made an oral request to transfer Dogar on Jan 23, adding that it received a written application on Jan 24.

The secretary added the electoral body accepted the request on Feb 6.

Justice Muneeb remarked that the ECP received an oral request, approved and then implemented it.

“Do government institutions run on oral communication?” he questioned.

Dogar, regarded as the blue-eyed officer of former chief minister Parvez Elahi, was removed as the city police chief by the caretaker administration on January 23 and replaced with Bilal Siddique Kamyana.
