Pakistan`s Punjab police ad features Indian police`s logo
Islamabad: An advertisement issued on Friday in Pakistani newspapers by the police force in Punjab province featured the logo of its counterpart in India`s Punjab state, triggering an outcry among the people.
The development was reminiscent of the uproar in India in January when a government advertisement featured former Pakistan Air Force chief Tanvir Mahmood Ahmed alongside Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Yesterday’s advertisement, which appealed to people to remain vigilant and cooperate with police to prevent terrorist attacks and other crimes, was carried on the front page of several English and Urdu newspapers.
The logo of the police force of India`s Punjab state was placed next to the words `Punjab Police` at the bottom of the advertisement.
Pakistan`s Punjab Police chief Tariq Saleem Dogar blamed printing company involved in the advertisement for the lapse, saying his department had provided it with the correct logo.
