F.P. Report

PESHAWAR: The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Dr. Muhammad Naeem Khan on Friday said that the guts exhibited by the force against the terrorism and anti-state elements would go a long way in the annals of history.

He said this while presiding over the first ever Regional Police Officer (RPOs) and District Police Officers (DPOs) conference of the newly merged districts at Central Police Office (CPO).

High ranking police officials of the former Levies and Khasadars largely attended the conference.

The police chief warmly welcomed the former Levies and Khasadar personnel and congratulated them on participating in the  august forum.

In the conference the salaries disbursement, its mechanism, budgetary allocation, infrastructure, police uniform, fuel charges and other issues were mumbled.

Speaking at the conference, the IGP stated that the forces based in the tribal belt had performed their duty as a front line of defence against the terrorists and in the process rendered voluminous sacrifices of their precious lives.

He termed the induction of the former Levies and Khasadars forces in the KP police a big success.

He said that it was a matter of great pride for him to command such a brave force who effectively held the enemies on back foot.

The Police Chief further elaborated that the former Levies and Khasadars are an integral part of the police force.

IGP assured that now services matters of the former Levies and Khasadars would not be decided behind closed doors, rather they would be taken on board and due weight-age would be given to their suggestions and opinions.

He pointed out that all basic necessities of the force would be met on priority basis for effective policing in the merged districts so as to enable the police to perform its professional duty.
