On Friday, as many as 13 senior police officers including the Central Police Officer (CPO) Gujranwala, and DPO Attock were transferred.

Meanwhile, Additional Inspector General of Punjab Police Ghulam Mehmood Dogar was appointed as CCPO for the second time. He was removed in November last year for mishandling the Tehreek-e-Labaik (TLP) march towards Islamabad.

The reshuffle comes only a couple of months after Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) had transferred senior police officers on key positions after Usman Buzdar stepped down as the chief minister.
