The committee discussed matter with different stakeholders and also made field visits.
The report of the committee suggested that keeping in view the areas of Rural Division Peshawar and crime ratio, it was difficult to address public grievances.
Police Policy Board after discussion decided to carve out a new division from existing Rural and Cantonment Divisions with the name of Saddar Division, one new Sub Division Saddar and realignment of certain police stations with the new proposed division and sub division.
