Clifton SP starts cleaning the house

Clifton SP starts cleaning the house

Dismisses ASI for absence without intimation,

issues show-cause notices to five SHOs and three SIs

The Clifton superintendent of police at a meeting on Monday dismissed an ASI over his absence from work without intimation and issued show cause notices to five SHOs and three sub-inspectors for their poor performance.

Dr Assad Malhi, who took over as the SP Clifton 10 days ago, held the meeting to review law and order situation within his jurisdiction and the police’s response to increasing crimes.

Talking to The News, the SP Clifton explained that the dismissal and show cause notices were part of the efforts to reform policing.

He said he had sought a three-month performance report of the police officials in his division.

“Though the performance report submitted to me was unsatisfactory, I decided to take action against the absent officers first,” he added.

“I was informed about an ASI, who was not attending office for the last five months.”

The official said the ASI’s file showed that the police department had sent him a show cause notice for his absence without intimation. “I have decided to dismiss him immediately to set an example.”

He said besides the ASI, there were some other cops who were either absent or underperforming.

“Three sub-inspectors have been handed down minor punishments for their bad performance,” he added.

The SP Clifton said he had issued show cause notices to five SHOs of the division for underperforming as crime had increased within their jurisdictions in the last three months.

The SHOs have been warned that departmental action would be taken against them if the situation remained unchanged.

Three constables too have been issued show cause notices for their poor performance. The official said no cop would be allowed take a leave until the end of the census. “I have ordered all officers in the division to strictly implement the National Action Plan and warned them of departmental action against them if they failed to perform well,” he concluded.
