Pakistan police has met infinite criticism as a department faces the challenges of corruption, bribery and inefficiency. However, the recent times have helped wear off this image as the Pakistani police has finally found its lost potential and is continuously making the headlines specifically their measures to bridge the gender gap and pressing on the significance of women representation in LEAs (Law Enforcement Agencies) has really helped change the previously held conservative image.
Today, the Pakistani nation has found another hero with the name of SHO Sultan Qamar. Serving as SHO of Rawalpindi City Police, he performed an act of incredible bravery and gallantry today by single-handedly taking on two armed criminals. The viral video shows the cop apprehending a criminal in public while another one tried to free his facilitator by shooting point blank at him. He survived the attack while one bullet missed his head closely.
The entire video shows the horror and panic among the public, and also how skilfully Sultan Qamar handled the situation. Two police officers, named Amjad and Akhtar, also sustained injuries in the attack.
The video was shared by CPO Rawalpindi, Abbas Ahsan lauding the cop’s valour. Taking it to twitter he wrote:
”Our brave SHO City Rawalpindi arrested one armed robber while another continued firing at him. These are the brave men who put their lives at risk every day that you may go through yours peacefully. Next time you meet a police officer remember this video. #SalamPolice”
