Almost 80 female constables in Karachi have signed up for a motorcycle training program to ride to work during lockdown, reports Arab News. The program was designed by a senior officer while in Indonesia on a United Nations deputation.
These women, who used to come to work at the Police Station in Ferozabad, Karachi, in buses, now ride their bikes to work and feel much more empowered and self- confident.
One lady police constable Afshan Murtaza, while speaking to Arab News revealed that it used to take her more than 2 hours to get to work from Steel Town to Ferozabad Police Station. She now arrives in merely 30 minutes on her motorbike and with a lot more convenience.
