LHC dismisses CCPO Lahore’s plea to challenge suspension

The Lahore High Court rejected Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Lahore Ghulam Mahmood Dogar’s appeal against his suspension because it lacked jurisdiction over the matter.

On Tuesday, Justice Muzamil Akhtar Shabir questioned whether the high court had the authority to investigate the suspension order at the beginning of the session.

Dogar’s attorney argued that his client was singled out because he had filed a lawsuit against a federal minister. It’s crucial to defend a civil servant’s rights when two governments are involved.

However, the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction over the topic was brought up again in court, and the judge questioned how the high court could hear the case.

The attorney then informed the judge that the case may be reviewed by the court.

The federal government’s attorney intervened and stated that CCPO Dogar’s failure to report to the federal government within three days was the reason for the suspension orders.

The petitioner’s attorney inquired “Is there a reason written in the suspension order?”

Justice Shabbir intervened and pointed out that the court’s issue related to how the high court had jurisdiction to consider the matter.

The case was subsequently dismissed since the plea was inadmissible adding that it was outside the court’s jurisdiction.
