On reaching the DPO office, Mr Rashid welcomed him with a bouquet. Faizan’s friends and relatives were also present in the office.

He was given the chair of the DPO. He also visited the smart city office for a day. The in-charge of the branch gave a briefing to the honorary DPO on the function of the CCTV cameras and other matters.

Faizan visited the Saddar Police Station also where the SHO welcomed him. He expressed his desire to join the police department as an officer one day.
