ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday decided to transfer incumbent Sindh Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kaleem Imam to the post of Secretary Narcotics Division of the federal government, reported Geo News.

The decision was taken at a meeting between PM Imran and Sindh IGP Imam in Islamabad. During the meeting, the province’s top cop briefed the premier regarding the law and order situation across the province.

The federal cabinet had on Tuesday delayed the appointment of a new Inspector-General Police (IGP) Sindh after the government's allies expressed "deep reservations" over a request by Sindh to transfer Imam out of the province.

The delay came a day after PM Imran and Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah met to discuss the appointment of a new Sindh IGP. 

A couple of days ago, the Sindh cabinet had decided to appoint a new IGP to replace Imam. The federal government had earlier snubbed a request from Sindh to remove Imam, saying he continue to serve as IGP until further notice.
