CCPO Lahore in limelight again after the motorway incident
Ever since the Lahore Motorway incident came into public attention, CCPO Lahore continues to blame the motorway victim again. Amid the investigation and manhunt of rapists, Sheikh cast blame on the victim for reportedly traveling at night through the desolated highway.
In a statement, Sheikh said: “I apologize to the victim woman, and to all sections of society who were saddened or angered by my statement. My intentions were not to hurt anyone. If my statement has led to any misunderstanding, I apologize to the victim and all those angered by it.”
In another incident, CCPO Sheikh issued orders for the detention of the SP Crime Investigation Agency (CIA). According to Dawn, there was a ‘heated argument’ between Sheikh and SP CIA Asim Iftikhar. The debate took place in the meeting in Safe City Authority headquarters. Later on, after the interference of his senior colleagues, Sheikh canceled the arrest orders.
According to sources, the circumstances turned violent when the CCPO lost his equanimity during the gathering. Consequently, he directed SP Civil Lines to lodge a lawsuit against SP Asim Iftikhar under section 155 (C).
Since his posting as the CCPO some two months ago, Sheikh had faced criticism for his insulting behavior towards his officers. A hardworking police officer had recently resigned after CCPO Lahore abused him for speaking ‘English’. What a shame!
