Fight for rights: Police officials move court for promotion

Fight for rights: Police officials move court for promotion


Some 17 assistant sub inspectors of police (ASIs) in Gilgit have challenged the new seniority list prepared by inspector general (IGP) Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) for denying them promotions.

The petition has been accepted by the G-B Chief Court. According to sources, 44 ASIs were appointed in Gilgit police in 2005 and they were put on probation for two years as per government rules.

The first seniority list of the ASIs was made in 2007. However, sources claimed the IGP arbitrarily changed the list on December 5, 2011, denying promotion to 17 ASIs.

Sources also said that aggrieved police officials made a case against the list before the IGP after the issuance of the new senior list, but he did not forward the file to the G-B chief secretary.

According to sources, none of the IGPs in G-B since 2005 had made any changes in the seniority list except for the present IGP. They added that the police department has also sought opinion from the Punjab police, which seconded the old seniority list.
