Punjab Police gifts house worth Rs.13 million to the family of martyred officer

IGP Usman Anwar emphasized that the police's tradition of making sacrifices for the security of the country and its citizens is a commendable and enduring one.

Punjab Police gifts Rs.13 million house to the family of the martyred officer Constable Muhammad Arsalan. Punjab’s Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Anwar, has been actively working to improve the well-being of police personnel and their families since taking office earlier this year.

As part of his efforts to support the families of police officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, IGP Usman Anwar has initiated a program to provide fully furnished houses to them.

In a recent social media post, Punjab Police announced that a house with all modern amenities has been handed over to the family of Constable Muhammad Arslan Ijaz, who tragically lost his life last year during a confrontation with robbers in Nankana.

The value of this house, as reported by the police, is Rs13.5 million. IGP Usman Anwar emphasized that the police’s tradition of making sacrifices for the security of the country and its citizens is a commendable and enduring one.

In another news, armed men attacked a Pakistan Air Force training base on Saturday and damaged three aircraft, the military said, with a group affiliated with the Pakistan Taliban claiming responsibility.


Three men were killed before they entered the base, with three more attackers “cornered/isolated”, a military statement said.

The Tehreek-e-Jihad Pakistan (TJP), a newly emerged militant group that is an affiliate of the home-grown Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) movement, claimed responsibility in a statement to media.

It comes after 14 troops were killed when their convoy came under attack in Balochistan province and six civilians died when a police van was targeted in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, both on Friday.

The latest attack happened in the early hours of Saturday morning in the city of Mianwali, in central Punjab province, near the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa border.

“Due to the swift and effective response by the troops, it has been foiled and thwarted, ensuring the safety and security of personnel and assets,” the military statement said.

“However, during the attack, some damage to three already grounded aircraft and a fuel bowser also occurred.”
