The Rawalpindi City Police Officer (CPO) DIG Ahsan Younas has yet to relinquish his charge a week after the Establishment Division issued his transfer orders.
The services of CPO Younas, a Grade 20 officer of the Police Services of Pakistan, were handed over from Punjab to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government under a rotation policy that requires the transfer of officers after every two years.
When contacted, Rawalpindi police spokesman told The Express Tribune that the Punjab government has not relieved DIG Younas so far. He will be allowed to relinquish charge when the Punjab government appoints CPO Rawalpindi. Therefore, CPO Younas will remain in his seat until his replacement arrives, he said. As soon as his replacement arrives, DIG Younas will be allowed to leave and he will report to K-P IG Office.
Meanwhile, CPO Younas on Friday inaugurated the new building of Naseerabad police station constructed at Dhoke Gujran, Masrial Road. Potohar SP, SDPO Cantt and other officers were present.
CPO was briefed that modern facilities would be provided in the new building to facilitate the citizens and police officers. Naseerabad police station would be established on modern lines under Special Initiative of Police Stations (SIPs). The old building at Peshawar Road near Koh e Noor Mills was congested and in a dilapidated condition.
The newly constructed double-story building of Naseerabad police station comprises 13 rooms and eight washrooms.
