Dismissed traffic policemen should be given only one time appeal


KARACHI: Approval of only one time appeal from dismissed traffic cops can improve the traffic police department and could encourage other honest policemen. The traffic police management needs reforms on urgent basis to make it corruption free department, said DIG Traffic Karachi Dr Amir Ahmed Shaikh on Monday.

Dr Amir said it is discouraging when an officer or constable is dismissed from the service on the account of misconduct and come back again only appealing in the department or through court. He said black sheep must be punished in every department who are ruining the dignity of the department only for their personal interests.

Talking to PPI, he said he had dismissed 60 officers and constables from their services on the account of misconduct but they can join their duties once again only appealing through proper channel. He said appeal system in the police is not one time but one who is dismissed can appeal many times that discouraging honest officers. He said appeal system in Traffic Police Department should be one time as allowed in Pakistan’s Army.
