Govt removes Mushtaq Sukhera as federal tax ombudsman.

ISLAMABAD -- The federal government on Thursday removed Mushtaq Ahmed Sukhera from the post of federal tax ombudsman, withdrawing the official notification for his appointment.

Former Inspector-General of Police (IGP) in Punjab, Mushtaq Sukhera was appointed the federal tax ombudsman in August 2017 by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government.

The notification "regarding appointment of Mr Muhstaq Ahmed Sukhera (Retd-PSP/BS-22) as the Federal Tax Ombudsman is hereby withdrawn ab initio", read the official notification from the Ministry of Law and Justice.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led federal government has prepared a reference against the former IGP Punjab for his alleged failure to avert the 2014 tragedy in Lahore's Model Town. The government had forwarded the reference to the Law Ministry.
