LAHORE: Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) retired Capt Amin Wains on Monday said that 15,000 police officials/officers played a key role in the security arrangements for Sunday’s international cricket match.
Calling a meeting to appreciate police for making elaborate security arrangements, he claimed the next target of Lahore police would be criminals looting citizens. According to a press release, the CCPO said security for the international cricket match was a “test case” for Lahore police in the wake of attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009 near the same venue.
“And we created history by rendering security services professionally and defeating the anti-state elements,” he added.
While reviewing the security measures during the meeting, the CCPO said 27 superintendents of police, 60 deputy superintendents of police and 134 station house officers among other personnel discharged duties for the match.
