The Chakwal district police officer is accused of punishing a policewoman by posting to Kallar Kahar police station on 24-hour duty for refusing to babysit for his children.

According to the 24NewsHD TV channel, the IGP visited Kalar Kahar police station on the way back to Lahore from Islamabad late Tuesday. Surprised by seeing a woman at night, the police chief asked if she was a help-seeker.

"No, I am a cop," the policewoman replied. 

Tell the whole tale. What are you doing here at the moment," he asked.

She replied: "Sir, I'm punished with doing 24-hour duty as I refused to babysit for the DPO."

The SHO Kallar Kahar too admitted the lady constable was assigned the duty on the order of DPO.

The IGP issued directives to hold an inquiry under RPO Rao Sardar Ali. The women cop has been transferred to Chakwal Khidmat Markaz.
