Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday heaped praise on a head constable of Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP), who returned to work only two days after an on-duty injury, resulting in a fracture to his arm.
On Wednesday, Qaiser Shakeel was hit by a speeding motorcycle while stopping a Suzuki Pickup for being on the wrong side of the road.
Qaiser's arm was fractured in the collision. This type of injury usually takes weeks to recover but the high-spirited police official returned to duty after just two days of medical attention.
"I am very happy," the premier can be heard saying while meeting with Qaiser in a video released by the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). "I saw [what you did] and read about it... a lot of people also appreciated your effort."

The prime minister said that the entire image of police is lifted by the effort of just one man because of such an incident. "I called you especially here to appreciate your effort and we will reward you for it as well."
Qaiser said that PM Imran was performing his duties to serve people with high spirits and he wanted to replicate it.
