KARACHI:Sindh Minister for Energy Imtiaz Shaikh has sent a legal notice to SSP Shikarpur Dr Rizwan, claiming Rs 1billion defamation charges.
Shaikh in the legal notice stated that SSP Shikarpur, within 14 days, leveled false allegations before media against him for which the SSP should apologize. The notice further said that judicial proceedings will be initiated against the SSP. Shaikh said: “SSP Shikparpur conspired to harm my and my family’s reputation through fabricated allegations in a secret report issued to media.”
The SSP issued a secret report which has nothing to do with the facts as he had conspired in connivance with Shaikh’s political opponents to damage his political credibility, said the notice. The law and order situation is getting worse after the appointment of SSP Dr Rizwan, the notice further stated.
It may be noted that SSP Shikarpur Dr. Rizwan had sent a secret report to IGP Sindh and DIGP Larkana that blamed Shaikh for leaking police action in advance to dacoit gangs in Shikarpur. The report further alleged that the criminals in the Katcha area had disturbed the peace of Shikarpur district and Imtiaz Shaikh was harbouring them.
