Vice-Chancellor UHS Prof Javed Akram, senior police officers of CTPL and a large number of traffic wardens were present on this occasion.

According to CCPO Lahore, the initiative aimed to give importance to the health of the traffic police personnel to save them from the dangers of heatstroke and dehydration. Kamyana said, "We have issued directives to all our traffic police officers out there to give due importance to their health, drink proper amounts of water and adopt precautionary measures in sizzling heat."
