Army pays tribute to police martyrs

RAWALPINDI: The Pakistan Army paid tribute to the police personnel on Police Martyrs Day, which was observed across the country on Tuesday.

“On Police Martyrs Day, tribute to martyrs of Pakistan Police,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a tweet.

“In the line of duty, they have been the 1st responders to every cry for help and answered every call with purpose and pride,” it added.

The Police Martyrs Day is observed on August 4 across Pakistan every year to pay homage to the martyred heroes of the force. The day is the death anniversary of Safwat Ghayur, a senior officer who was targeted by a suicide bomber in Peshawar on August 4, 2010.
