Chitrali woman becomes first ever muharar of police in Dir

TIMERGARA: A woman head constable belonging to Chitral, Rehmat Jehan, has been made the first lady ‘moharar’ at the Balambat police station of lower Dir.

Talking to media, Ms Jehan, 28, hailing from Madak Lasht valley of Chitral, said she had joined police department in 2012 as a constable. With a graduation degree, Ms Jehan after successfully completing her B-1 and lower school course at police training centre, Hangu, wished to be appointed as ‘moharar’.

“It is my ambition to reach to the posts of SHO and DSP and serve the people, especially helpless women,” she said, adding she never felt any hesitation or fear to work in the male-dominated society like Dir and Chitral. She said one of her sisters too wanted to join the police department after completing her studies.

Expressing her pleasure on posting as moharar at the police station, Ms Jehan said she would like to help out women complainants at the station. “I want to prove that women from conservative societies can also serve the nation,” she added.
