KARACHI: 

The Supreme Court (SC) expects the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to efficiently and expeditiously pursue an inquiry into corruption of Sindh police officers, including IG Ghulam Haider Jamali.

The larger bench, headed by Justice Amir Hani Muslim, asked the bureau to complete inquiries or investigation, fairly, justly and strictly in accordance with the law, and submit a report within a month.

Sindh Police’s graft: Corruption has trebled in IG Jamali’s tenure, observes SC

The directives came in an order on Friday after the five-day long hearings on separate applications regarding corruption in recruitments in Sindh Reserve Police (SRP) and unfair distribution of funds meant for the police investigation wing.

During the hearing, a compliance report was submitted based on recommendations of an inquiry committee against officers with controversial service records.
