PESHAWAR, 23 July: To boost morale of police personnel and appreciated their bravery and courage against militancy, students of Sarhad University, a private higher education institution, on Saturday showered rose petals and presented flowers to them.

Fatima Khalil, a female student of the university said they wanted to show respect to the policemen who have been performing their duties day and night to provide security to the public.

“These police personnel do their job day and night. They even guard the nation on Eid and other public holidays so we wanted to show our respect to them,” she said.

Police personnel have appreciated the students’ gesture and said it gave them a positive message.

“It is a good sign that someone has publicly appreciated and recognized our services. The students’ response will further encourage us and we will remember their love for ever,” a policeman Israel told TNN while commenting on the idea of the students.
