Peshawar - The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Moazzam Jah Ansari on Tuesday announced to celebrate 1st August as ‘Youm-e-Ghaziyan Police’ of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police every year. 

The IGP expressed these views while presiding over a video-conference to finalise arrangements of the Ghaziyan of Police Day. All Regional Police Officers (RPOs) attended the meeting.  

The IGP said that all ghazis had fought to establish permanent peace in the province and they had never cared about their lives. People normally pay homage to martyrs and tend to forget their ghazis, who have survived serious injuries. He said that police leadership has decided to acknowledge their services by celebrating 1st August as their day.  

The IGP directed police officers to remain in touch with these brave policemen and to resolve their problems. He further directed the RPOs to invite all ghazis and their families in specially arranged programmes in connection with Yum-e-Ghaziyan police. He asked the officers to reward handsomely their jawans and officers.
