Rs350 million released for 100-bed police hospital


With the intention to provide a 100-bed hospital for the police force of Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Police, the ground-breaking ceremony will begin in July this year, police sources stated.

A total of Rs350 million has been issued for the construction of the modern hospital for Islamabad police after the approval given by the Central Development Working Party (CDWP).

The much-awaited request for the Islamabad police has been fulfilled because of the personal interest of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Ahsan Iqbal, Minister for Interior Rana Sana Ullah Khan, and Inspector General of Police Islamabad Dr. Akbar Nasir Khan.

The hospital for workers of the Islamabad police is a huge step for their well-being which would enhance their morale.

Expressing his wholehearted pleasure in this regard, the IGP Islamabad praised his entire force and said that, unlike other agencies, Islamabad Police and their families did not have the best medical facilities. “We are deeply grateful to the Government of Pakistan for implementing this demand of the force and releasing Rs350 million in the first year for this state-of-the-art hospital having all kinds of treatment facilities,” he commented.

Islamabad police chief added that the team of Central Police Office, AIG Operations Karar Hussain Syed, DIG Security Hassan Raza Khan, XEN Latif Awan, Dr. Imtiaz Ahmed, Engineers Kashif Khan, Khalid Javed, and Abdul Majeed, played an important role in ensuring the development of the hospital.

The IGP Islamabad further said that maximum assistance would be given to the police personnel in every domain and such steps would increase the self-esteem of not only the police personnel but also their families.

He informed that further steps are being taken for the welfare of police personnel and their families. The provision of advanced facilities to police personnel and resolving their issues is among top priorities, the IGP added.
