Chaudhry Nisar Got Angry On Rangers Operation In Top City Plaza Islamabad

Published on May 20, 2017 by admin6

ISLAMABAD: The Interior Ministry has warned the Punjab Rangers of taking back its policing powers if it fails to explain by Monday a recent controversial raid in the outskirts of Islamabad,

According to the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997 under which Rangers were permitted to operate in Punjab, the paramilitary force is bound to work alongside the police and keep the district administration in the loop regarding its operations. However, no such actions were taken during the raid in question, the sources added.

After two previous notices demanding explanations from the Rangers went un-replied, the interior ministry — with the approval of the minister — has warned the paramilitary force in the latest notice of withdrawing their policing powers in Islamabad if a reply is not received by Monday, May 22, sources informed further.

In February this year, five wings of the Punjab Rangers were granted policing powers in the province for a limited period to be renewed from time-to-time, in a meeting chaired by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.
