LAHORE  - The Punjab government yesterday posted Bilal Siddique Kamyana as the Regional Police Officer for Faisalabad division.

The notification to this effect was issued by the provincial government yesterday. The officer is likely to assume the charge of his new assignment on Friday (today).

DIG Bilal Siddique Kamyana, known as the best crime fighter in the police service of Pakistan, was given the new assignment after Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif himself interviewed the officer last week.

Kamyana has vast policing experience and therefore he was given important the field postings in the recent years. Previously, he served as district police officer, city police officer, and the regional police officer in different districts of the province.

Bilal Siddique Kamyana is regarded as a seasoned and well-disciplined officer in the police circles. The corruption-tainted and incompetent field officers in the police service prefer to get transferred to other districts of the province whenever Kamyana is given important positions in their districts.

Kamyana leaves no stone unturned to penalize the police officers having bad reputation. However, he always encourages the good officers under his command.
