No gender discrimination in Punjab Police: IGP

  • Sukhera says women police personnel performing duties energetically side by side male cops

Women police personnel of the Punjab Police have always proved their capabilities and professionalism at all levels, observed Inspector General of Police Punjab Mushtaq Ahmad Sukhera while addressing the passing-out ceremony of the eighth batch of 233 recruit lady constables at Police Training College in Chuhng area on Thursday.

He said the Punjab Police were committed to meeting all kind of challenges and for this purpose policewomen were performing their duties energetically with male cops side by side.

“Human history proved and acknowledged the courage, bravery and determination of the women at defence fronts,” he added.

The IGP further said that he felt proud that a large number of women were joining the Police Department and hoped that after getting such professional training they would perform their duties diligently and also try their best to eliminate crime from society.

Sukhera said that there was no gender discrimination in the Punjab Police and this was the reason that all 550 passout lady constables last year were successfully discharging their duties in all districts.

Speaking on the occasion, the PTS Chuhng Commandant DIG Fayyaz Ahmad Dev told the IGP that the pass-outs belonged to 23 districts which also included five from FIA. He said that 55 lady recruits were from Multan, 25 from Gujrat, 20 Bahawalnagar, 19 each Rawalpindi & Khanewal, 18 Gujranwala, 17 Vehari and from other districts.

He further said that among these lady recruits, one was MPhil, two LLB, 18 MA, 100 graduates, 78 intermediate and 38 matriculates.

The training period was comprised of eight months which commenced from July 24, 2015. Later, he distributed prizes among the distinction holders of the course.


  1. I have seen their Passing out Parade and it was impressive. Hope they will perform better – like did the Pakistan Wemen Cricket team in the World T 20.
