“Rana Sanaullah and Ehsan Iqbal felt the need for a well-equipped hospital for the Islamabad police and made it a reality,” the IGP said. IGP: “Both ministers took interest in the plan and executed the ICT police’s dreams.”

With the establishment of the hospitals, monthly medical exams will be required for all city police officials. He said hospitals will hire surgeons and medical specialists.

The IGP wants to provide police officers and their families with the same facilities and services as military hospitals.
