    Refusal to 'use force' on protesters: SSP Nekokara reinstated after two years

    SSP Mohammad Ali Nekokara

    ISLAMABAD: Two years after his removal from service for refusing to “use force” on protesters during the 120-day sit in by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), SSP Mohammad Ali Nekokara was reinstated on Thursday.

    The officer was suspended in 2014 and removed from service a year later on the grounds of charges including “inefficiency and misconduct” during the sit-in against the alleged systematic rigging. The officer had reportedly refused to stop and remove protesters after they advanced to Constitution Avenue.

    A notification issued by the Establishment Division stated that the officer’s appeal against his dismissal had been accepted by the Prime Minister, leading to his exoneration. It added that the intervening period would be considered as leave.

    According to the inquiry report released on April 2, 2015, Nekokara could not produce evidence he received verbal instructions authorising the use of force. It also termed the officer’s claims “deliberate misrepresentation of facts.”

    The report cited “available evidence” that no police official was directed to initiate the use of force and even the use of “retaliatory force” was only allowed in defence of life and property.

    Nekokara was dismissed for ‘inefficiency and misconduct’ on April 2, 2015, in line with the recommendation of the inquiry committee.

    Good to see someone take a stand on ethical/moral grounds, suffer, and win it. He should be awarded salary with full benefits for those two years too.

    I don't think he was asked to fire at protesters because thats what PTI wanted. They are working on foreign agenda but street supporters are innocent patriotic Pakistanis.

    Excellent officer. We need more people like him who do their job honestly and has the ability to stand up against unlawful orders of their superiors. He is indeed a role model for all the govt servants especially the police officers.

    The whole world requires such officers who risk their careers and sometimes lives when not carrying out questionable orders.
    Snowden and similar guys from the west are good egs of what happens when you cross your govts.
