Inspector-General (IG) Islamabad Sultan Azam Taimuri suspended the officials after female officers of the force lodged a complaint in the chief justice’s complaint cell.
Following the complaint, the IG ordered an investigation which found the three officials were involved in harassing the female officers. “Further investigations into the matter are underway,” the Islamabad IG said.
In the complaint, the female officers shared horrifying details of how they were being harassed in their police line headquarters.
They alleged that the superintendent of their headquarters, reader and operator ask them to come to their rooms and then “take advantage of them”.
“The chief justice should take suo motu notice of the situation. We will provide complete evidence to him,” the female police officers said in their complaint.
Stating that the environment of the headquarters needs to be improved, the female police officers said the “black sheep” of the police lines should be weeded out.
