ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday admired a head constable of Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP), who resumed duty two days after he was hit by a vehicle, leaving him with a broken arm.
Head Constable Qaiser Shakeel was performing duty in the capital when he tried to stop a speeding vehicle over one-way violation and got hit by it.
The accident, which occurred on Wednesday last week, caused a fracture to his arm, an injury that normally takes weeks to recover. Shaeel resumed duty on June 11.
