Caretaker Chief Minister (CM) Punjab, Syed Mohsin Raza Naqvi, has announced a new initiative to provide benefits to the children of martyred police personnel.
During a meeting with the IG Punjab and CCPO Lahore, the CM stated that children of martyred police officers will receive an additional 10 marks during departmental recruitment on open merit.
