The devastating attack, which injured at least 221 people, many of whom were police officers, and killed at least 95 people, serves as a painful reminder of the sacrifices made by those who dedicate their lives to serving and protecting others.
The loss of these brave officers, who perished in the line of duty, is deeply felt by those who knew them as well as by their families and communities.
They will be remembered for their selfless courage and unwavering dedication to justice. The nation honors these heroes, who will never be forgotten, and stands with their loved ones as they mourn.
Constable Ali Umair Umair had just joined the police force four months earlier out of a desire to continue serving his country.
He had gone to the Police Lines on the day of the blast to get his training course permit, but he never came back.
Ali was the breadwinner and the oldest of his three siblings.
Ali was not only a martyr but also a Hafiz-e-Quran.
A few days ago, Inspector Irfanullah narrowly escaped the deadly attack on the Sarband Police Station. However, he was at the blast site for a crucial meeting.
He had three daughters, two sons, and a widow.
Irfan lost his father when he was five years old, and despite a financial crisis, he finished his education.
He ended up joining the police because he wanted to help the country, which got him a high-ranking death.
In a Peshawar bombing, ASI Muhammad Suleman Suleman was also killed in the line of duty.
He joined the police in 2009, inspired by his brother, and was the youngest of six siblings.
According to his family, he was present in the mosque at the time of the blast because he was punctual five times.
After Suleman became entangled in the fallen roof’s debris and was found dead late at night, he gave up his life.
The victim’s marriage only lasted a year, and they had a daughter.
