Supreme court has summoned Pakpattan DPO Rizwan Gondal, Inspector General Punjab Police and the Regional Police Officer in personal capacity. Moreover, an inquiry officer has also been summoned along with his report on the matter.
The investigation report on suo-motu case has also been forwarded to IG Punjab. According to the inquiry report, Pakpattan DPO Rizwan Gondal was responsible for not conducting an inquiry against officers who misbehaved with Khawar Maneka. The inquiry report also stated that Pakpattan DPO Rizwan Gondal ‘twisted’ the entire matter and made it public on social media.
However, Reports of Pakpattan DPO Rizwan Gondal’s transfer sparked a controversy earlier this week. The speculation suggested that the police officer was transferred because of conflict with Khawar Maneka.
