The Inspector General (IG) Police, Captain (Retd.) Arif Nawaz Khan, has approved a minor change in the uniform of Punjab Police.
The IG okayed the amendment in the Punjab Police Dress Regulation 2017, through which the color of socks has been changed from Olive Green to Navy Blue.
Earlier in May, the provincial government had decided to restore the old uniform of the police from the start of the new fiscal year. However, the decision was not implemented due to unknown reasons.
A notification in this regard was sent to the Ministry of Interior. The notification, however, turned out to be his last as the federal government has replaced him with Shoaib Dastagir as the new IG Punjab.
Who is Shoaib Dastagir?
Before his appointment as IG Punjab, Shoaib Dastagir was serving as MD National Police Foundation. Besides, he has previously served as IG Azad Kashmir and has also worked with a UN Mission in the past.
