Ex-Servicemen Took to the Streets Demanding Pay
KARACHI- Ex-servicemen, who joined the police force to combat terrorism in city sensitive areas, staged a protest over delay in release of their salaries at Central Police Office here on Wednesday.

The ex-servicemen gathered outside the Central Police Office (CPO) and staged a protest which caused a traffic jam on I.I. Chundrigar Road. They claimed that the police department has not released their salaries for around eight months. Following their protests, police high-ups came out of the CPO and assured them of their full cooperation.
The protesters, however, ended their protests upon IGP Sindh Ghulam Hyder Jamali assurance of salaries to be issued in two weeks.
