Under the contract, half of the school expenses of children of serving policemen will also be waived off, according to Mardan police.

DPO Khan hailed the agreement, saying that the provisions made in the contract would encourage policemen. He further said that the KP police had "rendered innumerable sacrifices" while fighting against terrorism and it was the "joint responsibility of society to serve the heirs of the martyrs".

“We have set up a police hospital, a vocational training centre and other facilities for the families of the police martyrs because it is our responsibility to fulfil their needs,” he said.
