It’s worth mentioning that during the police court in some districts including Dera Ismail Khan, officials, and officers demanded that the privileges of the provincial police force, which plays the role of frontline against terrorism, should be equal to the police department of Punjab province.

The provincial police also wrote two letters to inquire about education allowance and medical SPO.
