LAHORE: Eighteen senior police officers, two DIGs among them, are likely to be demoted after the Supreme Court verdict declaring “out-of-turn” promotions illegal.

These officers (mostly SPs) will get the rank of deputy superintendent of police and even inspector.

The Punjab police have been employing delaying tactics in implementation of two similar judgments the Supreme Court had passed in 2013 and 2015.

The apex court in its judgement of 2013 had declared: “No police personnel or civil servant is entitled to out-of-turn promotion on account of gallantry award or otherwise.”

In its latest decision on Jan 26, 2016, the SC expressed its utter displeasure over non-compliance of the earlier orders and warned the Punjab IG, the home secretary and the chief secretary of contempt of court proceeding.

“The non-compliance of this judgment shall expose these officials concerned to contempt proceedings,” the SC declares in its judgment .

DIG Akhtar Omar Hayat Lalayka and CIA SP Umar Virk were among the beneficiaries of out-of-turn promotions.
