KARACHI: Former additional inspector-general (AIG) of Karachi police Ghulam Qadir Thebo approached on Wednesday the Sindh High Court (SHC) against alleged denial of promotion to him.

Thebo, a grade-21 officer, took the establishment division secretary and head of the departmental promotion board to court over alleged discrimination in promotion.

The police officer argued that he was entitled to promotion to the next grade as he fulfilled the criteria and had the requisite qualification and experience for the promotion. However, the promotion board of the department ignored him in its meeting convened to consider the promotions of officers to the next grade.

The former Karachi police chief argued that he had fulfilled requirements for promotion to grade-22 but the respondents denied him his due promotion.

It was argued that the officer had the right to be promoted to the next grade but it had been denied in violation of the service rules as well as constitutional provisions.

Therefore, the court was pleaded to order the establishment division secretary, departmental promotion board's chief and other officers concerned to consider the petitioner for promotion to grade-22.

A two-judge bench, headed by Justice Omar Sial, fixed the hearing for January 31.
