She was once shunned by her relatives for taking up education. Today the whole of Pakistan is proud of this braveheart. This school girl is today a police officer in the Karachi Police. And on Friday, she drew world’s attention after she foiled the terrorist attack on Chinese consulate.
After three suicide bombers ambushed the Chinese consulate in Karachi, policemen were quick to respond. The person leading this operation was Suhai Aziz Talpur, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Karachi.
Pakistan media reports suggest that Talpur was the first to respond to the reports of gunshots near the consulate. She ensured that the three BLA militants- carrying 9 hand-grenades, assault rifles and huge cache of ammunition don’t reach the diplomatic staff inside.
First ASP from Lower Sindh
Suhaiz Aziz is the first woman ASP from lower Sindh. She hails from a middle-class family in village Bhai Khan Talpur in Tando Mohammed Khan district. She cleared the Central Superior Services (CSS) exams to join ASP in 2013.
“When my parents decided to enroll me at a school, most of our relatives started taunting my family. So much so, that my family had to leave our village and move to a nearby town,” she had said then.
“But the moment I cleared my Central Superior Services [CSS] exams and was told that I would be joining the police department as an ASP, the same people who taunted us started approaching me by claiming to be my long-lost relatives. This is the power of education and being a female, I am proud to have this power,” she wrote in a Facebook post shared by UN Women Pakistan in 2017.
