After the suspension of Lahore CCPO Ghulam Mehmood Dogar by the federal service tribunal, the Punjab government’s Joint Investigation Team being led by him and probing into a gun attack on PTI Chairman Imran Khan during his long march early this month has become controversial, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday. 

After the suspension of CCPO Dogar, the police officers who are part of the investigation team are in a fix as no suspended officer could become head of a JIT. 

According to the legal experts, Dogar is a suspended officer and he can’t lead an investigation team. 

The federal government issued the suspension notification of Lahore CCPO on Nov 5 but still he did not leave the charge of the post. 

Punjab government appointed Dogar head of the JIT but the Lahore police is in a fix how they could obey the orders of a suspended officer. 

If the CCPO leaves the charge of the post, the Punjab Police will send a panel of officers for the CCPO appointment to the Chief Minister.
