ASF officials face the heat for giving protocol to Jahangir Tareen


–One official transferred, others to face disciplinary action

ISLAMABAD: The Airport Security Force (ASF) has transferred a sub inspector from Bahawalpur Airport to Turbat Airport while others will face disciplinary action for giving special protocol to Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) senior leader Jahangir Kahan Tareen.

Sub Inspectors Muhammad Arshraf, Aslam Bhatti and Sarfraz Hussain gave special treatment to the PTI leader at Bahawalpur Airport, which annoyed the high-ups of the department, who initiated an investigation against the official.

The director general (DG) of ASF concluded that the Ashraf and Bhatti should be reprimanded severely for violating the Standard Operation Procedure (SOP) by excluding the senior PTI leader from body search and extending him illegal protocol to and from the apron whereas Hussain should be reprimanded severely for not conducting a body check of the PTI leader.

The DG also ordered further action against the officials.
