PESHAWAR: The women police station in Abbottabad has become functional after 20 years after it was provided a record to lodge the first information report (FIR) and daily diary in cases of violence and crimes against women. The police station was inaugurated 28 years ago by former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, but it remained dysfunctional since 2002.

“The women police station has been made functional. A lady assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Fahmeeda Bibi has been assigned the charge of station house officer as no female inspector and sub-inspector was available. A female head constable is also posted muharer along with all the support staff including the wireless operator from ladies police,” District Police Officer (DPO) of Abbottabad Sajjad Khan told The News.
