ISLAMABAD: In a bid to ensure security in the city, the Islamabad Police have cancelled leaves of all police officials in the capital.
The decision was made in a meeting of police high-ups on Friday to review security measures in the city. The meeting was presided over by SSP-Operations Sajid Kiani with all zonal SPs, sub-divisional police officers and SHOs participating.
