Amjad Javed Saleemi took charge as Punjab police chief on Monday as he replaced Tahir Khan.

Saleemi took charge as Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) a day after the by-polls concluded and the federal government’s decision regarding appointment of the police chief went in effect. Last week, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had suspended the federal government’s decision to replace Punjab police chief Tahir Khan with Saleemi stating that the police chief replacement would be considered a violation of the ECP rules due to the by-polls.
