SP Suhai Aziz, the police officer who led the Chinese consulate operation, has said that encountering unpredictable and life-threatening situations is routine for police officials and that she did not feel scared at all while leading the operation.
“This incident got highlighted, [but in reality] a law officer doesn’t even know a rickshaw [he’s passing by] might have a bomb in it,’ she said, while speaking in a private TV talk show on Friday night. “When we wear this uniform we are trained…you won’t see fear in any officer, I assure you.”
Aziz also thanked her seniors for praising her and recommending her for the Quaid-e-Azam Medal.
The first woman ASP from lower Sindh, Aziz received praise for her bravery from the Sindh chief minister and Inspector General Sindh Police. Her pictures leading law enforcement personnel to take out terrorists went viral on social media, garnering widespread accolades by all and sundry.
Following her brave leadership in the security operation, IG Sindh Dr Kaleem Imam has recommended Suhai Aziz’s name for the prestigious Quaid-e-Azam Medal. She is the first woman police in Sindh to be recommended for the award.
Security forces earlier today foiled an attack on the Chinese consulate located in Karachi’s upscale Clifton, killing all three terrorists and seizing at least nine hand grenades, Kalashnikov bullets, magazines and explosives.
Two police officials were martyred while carrying out retaliatory firing. A security guard was critically injured and rushed to a hospital.
