The Sindh Inspector General of Police (IGP) AD Khowaja on Wednesday announced the appointment of 813 candidates to the Special Protection Unit (SPU) which is tasked with maximising the security of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects.
The Sindh police spokesman informed that IGP Khowaja had sent recommendations to the provincial government for appointment of 813 candidates, out of a total of 1,047 candidates, who were placed on a waiting list on completion of recruitment in the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) and the Rapid Response Force (RRF).
The motive behind the appointment of the 813 candidates to the SPU, said the spokesman, was to enhance manpower and ensure the best possible security measures for CPEC projects. The spokesman added that IGP Khowaja had announced the appointment of the candidates who were on the waiting list after receiving approval from Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah.
He further said that top 813 candidates on the waiting list would be issued appointment letters very soon, adding that the Special Protection Unit’s total strength would then increase from 1,588 to 2,401
