RAWALPINDI: Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Wednesday visited Peshawar and directed the troops to always stay focused on their professional duties in the service of the nation.

On arrival at the Corps Headquarters, the COAS laid a floral wreath at Shuhada (martyrs) monument, an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) news release said.
