Scarifies of martyrs not to be wasted, Says IGP.

Inspector General Police Punjab Captain (R) Arif Nawaz Khan said that I am trying at every level for the increase in pay of those officials and officers who put their lives in danger and serve under the scorching heat of the sun, being chief of Punjab Police it is my duty to take the responsibility of welfare of force. And I know that if this well-trained force is given relief with respect to their financial constraints then their performance may be enhanced manifold. He further said that the system of punishment and reward in Punjab Police is very stern, every year hundreds of officers and officials are given punishments under accountability system who transgresses their powers and authority, and I also advocate Punjab Police in their welfare issues on every forum. He said that this uniform is a blessing from Allah and I consider every constable of Police fortunate who has been selected to protect the public. He said that police martyrs have augmented the prestige and respect of Police department and we are proud to be a part of this police force which has been watered by the blood of 1400 martyrs. I assure you that the sacrifices of these martyrs will not go wasted. He moreover said that I cannot leave at all the families and heirs of those officials and officers who embraced martyrdom or got injured for protection of public and as a father of this department I am always with the families of martyrs and will solve their problems on priority basis.
