The Sindh police chief Police IG Ghulam Nabi Memon has ordered the removal of two officers of the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) from their posts after a departmental inquiry found them culpable for releasing a suspect in exchange for bribe at the CTD Civil Lines police station.

A notification has been issued, announcing the removal of the two senior CTD officers. SSP Operations Imran Shaukat and DSP Operations Suhail Akhtar Salhari have been relieved of their duties and directed to report to the Central Police Office (CPO).

Sources privy to the matter told The Express Tribune that IG Sindh Police Ghulam Nabi Memon has also ordered a comprehensive review of the assets belonging to officers and personnel serving in the CTD for an extended duration. This review covers an examination of their residences, bank accounts, personal vehicles, and passports.

IG Memon's move underscores his commitment to upholding integrity and transparency within his force.
