ISLAMABAD: Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf bin Said Al-Malki will arrange Royal Visit to Saudi for ASP Syeda Shehrbano Naqvi and her family following her heroic actions in saving a woman from a violent mob in Lahore’s Achhra Market.

A source linked with the Saudi Ambassador told The News and Geo that Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf bin Said Al-Malki told this to ASP Syeda Shehrbano during their meeting in the Saudi embassy where the ambassador hosted the brave police officer.

The source said that the Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Pakistan appreciated the courage of the police officer and told her that the Saudi govt will bear expenses of her travel to Saudi with her family as a Royal guest. The Saudi ambassador lauded ASP Naqvi for her selfless devotion to duty and professionalism in defusing a volatile situation.

A day earlier, the Gulberg Assistant Superintendent of Police called on Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir at General Headquarters.

Gen Munir acknowledged the vital role Pakistani women were playing in all walks of life. “Since independence, Pakistani women have distinguished themselves at home and abroad, by virtue of their talent, tenacity, and commitment,” he was quoted as saying.

The inspector general of police (IGP) has recommended Syeda Sheharbano Naqvi for the Quaid-i-Azam Police Medal (QPM).
