KARACHI:

On the directives of Inspector General of Police (IGP) Sindh Ghulam Nabi Memon and Deputy IGP Security and Emergency Services Division Dr Maqsood Ahmed the arrangements of sending the flood victims back to their homes from the relief camps in Karachi are being made as the life is coming back to normalcy in some areas of Sindh.

The Security Division started a special shuttle bus service for flood victims on behalf of Sindh Police to transport them to their native areas, said a news release on Tuesday.

According to details, in the first phase, three buses of the Special Security Unit (SSU) with more than 100 families onboard were dispatched to the districts of Mehar and Shahdadkot. Ration and cash were distributed among the victims by SSU and a private welfare organisation, so that the victims do not face any problem after reaching home.

DIGP Security and Emergency Services Division Dr Maqsood Ahmed said the services of the Sindh Police were unforgettable in this difficult time.
