LAHORE – In a retaliatory move, tailors of Faisalabad and Rawalpindi on Thursday moved Lahore High Court (LHC) against Punjab Inspector General (IG)  and other police officers over non-payment of dues.

According to a report by Dunya News, Rawalpindi-based Naveed and Iftikhar from Faisalabad had been  stitching the uniforms of the police officers from the last two years.

However, they were not being paid their dues as the police officers always made a new excuse to avoid the payment.

Both the couturier owe a huge sum of Rs 6 million from the police department and so they decided to take the legal course for recovery of their payment.

The court has sought response from IG Punjab Mushtaq Sukhera in next 10 days.

This is the first time, Punjab police head would be responding to Lahore High Court over non payment to tailors, although he has been appearing before the court in multiple cases related to his professional duties.
