PIA has fired its General Manager (GM) of security after he was found guilty of sexually harassing a female employee. The verdict was announced by the Chief Ombudsman, who reviewed the harassment complaint made by the affected PIA employee.

The female employee was serving in the PIA Vigilance and Security Department when she filed a harassment complaint against the GM. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the airlines, Arshad Malik, took notice of the allegation in 2019 and forwarded it to the airline’s women’s protection committee. He directed the committee to examine the situation and submit a full report as soon as possible.

Once the investigation was completed, the committee recommended that the GM be dismissed, which the new administration did. Mashood Tajwar, the airline’s spokesperson, assured that the committee’s recommendations would be implemented with care and that any objections from female employees would be addressed appropriately.
