11 December, 2012

Islamabad: Eight police officials including an Assistant Sub-Inspector, two head constables and five constables were shown the door after being found involved in corruption and receiving bribes, a police spokesman said on Monday.

DIG (Headquarters) Dr. Sultan Azam Temuri conducted inquiries into the various complaints following the directions from IGP Islamabad Bani-Amin Khan regarding bribery practices of a few police officials.

On December 4, complaints were received against ASI Muhammad Idress, Head Constable Muhammad Ghalib, Constables Bakht Zada, Safdar of Sabzi Mandi Police Station and against Head Constable Elahi Bux, Constables Habib Ullah, Riaz, Rehmat Ullah of Industrial Area Police Station for taking bribe at police pickets falling in their respective jurisdiction.

Following these complaints, IGP Islamabad Bani-Amin Khan assigned the inquiry into these matters to DIG (Headquarters) Sultan Azam Temuri. The DIG (Headquarters) listened to the viewpoint of all of these policemen and found them guilty of corrupt practices. He ordered for termination of these policemen and said that corruption as well as bribery practices would not be tolerated in the department.

Renewing the commitment to root out the menace of corruption and make Islamabad Police corruption free force, IGP Islamabad Bani-Amin Khan said that no one within the department would be allowed to do any kind of embezzlement and only those following the policy of zero tolerance against corruption would survive. He said these policemen were being dismissed from Islamabad Police on the charges of corruption.
