In this regard, the Establishment Division has sent out a notification that was only released this past Saturday.
According to the notification, “Mr. Muhammad Ahsan Younas, a BS-20 officer of the Police Service of Pakistan, who is presently serving as Inspector General, Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Police, under Interior Division, is transferred and his services are placed at the disposal of the Government of Punjab, with immediate effect and until further orders,” was the individual who would be receiving the transfer.
Dr. Akbar Nasir, a senior police official, has taken over as the new chief of the capital police, succeeding Ahsan Younas in the role.
In addition to this, the Senior Superintendent of Police for Operation Muhammad Faisal has also been moved, and the government of Punjab has been given control of his services.
In the same manner, Sohail Zaffar Chatta, who was an officer of grade 19, has been reassigned to the capital police.
During this time, Islamabad police launched a search operation in the early morning hours of Saturday around the residence of the former prime minister and current chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, in Bani Gala.
According to the information available, a large contingent of police comprising officials from the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) and personnel from the Bomb Disposal Squad arrived in Bani Gala with the intention of dispersing PTI workers who had set up camps outside of Imran Khan’s residence in Bani Gala.
In response to the numerous threats made against the life of the former Prime Minister Imran Khan, the police say they carried out a standard search operation.
