Two constables deployed at the palatial residence of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif here have been sacked for allegedly plucking guava from his garden.
Abid and Saifullah lost their jobs for committing the ‘crime’. They were dismissed from service after they were found guilty of their crime, Lahore police sources said.
The security in-charge caught both the constables plucking the guava from the ‘forbidden tree’ at the Jati Umra residence of Sharif in Raiwind, located at the outskirts of Lahore. The security in-charge reprimanded the two constables and submitted a complaint against them to the higher police authorities who dismissed them from service.

Lahore police spokesman, however, denied firing of the constables on the ground of plucking guavas.
Earlier this year, 27 policemen deployed at Sharif’s residence were suspended from service after a few peacocks were killed by a cat. “The policemen were punished for failing to stop the cat from killing the peacocks. The cops deployed to guard the birds were found asleep when the cat killed the peacocks,” the inquiry finding official said.
Sharif’s farmhouse residence is sprawling over 400 acres and more than 2,000 policemen have been deployed at Raiwind Road leading to his residence and inside of it.
The opposition has strongly criticised the government for spending millions of rupees for the security of the prime minister’s residence in Lahore.
