    Maria Mehmood has been posted as DPO Pakpattan after Gondal's transfer

    Woman Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Maria Mahmood has been posted as District Police Officer Pakpattan after Rizwan Umar Gondal was reportedly transferred following brawl with Khawar Maneka, the former husband of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Maneka.
    Maria has been directed to take charge with immediate effect.
    SSP Maria Mahmood was appointed DPO Pakpattan by Punjab Police Chief Dr Kaleem Imam on Thursday. A notification has been issued in this regard.
    Maria was serving as SSP Rawalpindi Investigation.
    The Pakpattan DPO [District Police Officer] was reportedly transferred after he intercepted Khawar Maneka for speeding and he was ordered to immediately report to the Central Police Office, Lahore.
    Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has taken suo motu notice of the transfer of DPO Pakpattan Rizwan Gondal.
    A three-member bench of the apex court headed by CJP will hear the suo motu case on Friday, August 31.
    The SC has summoned Pakpattan DPO Rizwan Umar Gondal, Inspector General Punjab Police Kaleem Imam, and the Regional Police Officer in personal capacity.

    Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar has taken notice of the "Pakpattan incident" in which DPO Rizwan Gondal was transferred, according to a notification issued on Thursday.
    The top judge has issued notices to Inspector General of Punjab (IGP) Dr Syed Kaleem Imam, additional IGP, inquiry officer Abubakar Khuda Baksh, Sahiwal RPO and Gondal to appear in the Supreme Court tomorrow [Friday] along with the inquiry report.
    Controversy ensued after IGP Imam removed Gondal from his post on Monday, with the issue going viral on social media and people attributing the transfer to an incident involving Khawar Fareed Maneka, the former husband of first lady Bushra.
    IGP Imam, however, said Gondal had not been transferred under any pressure but for making false statements.
    He added that when the DPO was asked about an incident of misconduct of police with a citizen, he lied and made false statements regarding transfer orders on social media.
    Appearing before an inquiry committee, Gondal had submitted a written statement, denying the charges of misbehaviour, and saying he and his force had done a lawful job.
