The decisions were taken during a meeting, in which Capital City Police Officer Mohammad Ali Gandapur briefed KP police chief Sanaullah Abbasi about the two new police stations and one new circle as well demarcation of the rest of the police stations and circles in the provincial metropolis.

“Parts of Hayatabad will be included in the limits of Tatara Police Station to improve policing. Also, areas of East Cantt, West Cantt, Shah Qabaool and certain other police stations and circles will also be demarcated,” said Mohammad Ali Gandapur.
