The Sindh Government on Monday renamed Beaumont Road in Karachi to honour slain Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Chaudhry Mohammed Aslam Khan on the occasion of his third death anniversary.
The road is located near the Chief Minister House in the Pakistan Industrial Development Corporation area.
Aslam was serving in the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) when he was killed in a suicide bombing three years ago. He was considered one of the most proficient cops in the metropolis working against terror activities.
A ceremony to honour Aslam’s memory was held at Beaumont Road near CTD Civil Lines on Monday. Aslam’s family also attended the ceremony.
Karachi-South DIG Azad Khan said the road has been named after the slain SSP to honour his services fighting terrorism and curbing organised crime in the provincial capital.
While speaking to Dawn, the DIG said the slain SSP’s wife had written an application to this effect to the authorities concerned, which was then forwarded to the Karachi commissioner’s office.
“Commissioner Karachi then suggested the road be renamed and a summary on the subject was submitted to the Sindh CM,” Khan said, adding a notification was issued once the CM approved it.
Assistant Inspector General Karachi Mushtaq Ahmed Mahar, SSP CTD Omer Shahid Hamid, SSP CTD Naveed Khowaja, SSP South Saqib Ismail Memon, SSP West Nasir Aftab and Transnational Terrorism Intelligence Group leader Raja Umer Khattab and members of the civil society attended the ceremony.
