Lahore, Punjab Police, under the leadership of Inspector General Dr. Usman Anwar, is intensifying its operations against criminal elements in the province’s border districts, including Rajanpur, Rahim Yar Khan, and Muzaffargarh, aiming to fortify the region against robbers, terrorists, and other malefactors.

According to Punjab Police, during a video-linked meeting held at the Central Police Office today, IG Punjab Dr. Usman Anwar outlined a series of measures to bolster the police force’s logistics, human resources, transportation, and equipment.
