PM Imran Khan approves Rs70 million package for slain SP Tahir Dawar's family
ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan has approved a package of Rs70 million for the grieving family of Superintendent of Police (SP) Tahir Khan Dawar, who was tortured to death in Afghanistan after being kidnapped from the federal capital of Pakistan, Interior Minister Shehryar Afridi said on Tuesday.

In addition to the Rs70m package, SP Dawar's son will also be offered a job as an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of police.
