ISLAMABAD: Eighteen officials of the capital police were demoted for their bad reputation, while three years service of nine constables was forfeited, media reports have stated.
According to police sources, the 27 officials had been served show-cause notices in December and had been asked to present explanations for their bad reputation and accusations of extorting money.
All the officials, which included one inspector, five sub-inspectors, seven assistant sub-inspectors, five head constables and nine constables had denied the allegations.
Investigations into their service records showed that almost all of them had earned bad entries and were placed under suspensions on serious charges. On consistent reports of misconducts and poor service records, the senior superintendent of the police (SSP) decided to demote the officials.
