Punjab Inspector General of Police Arif Nawaz has assured foolproof security for the final T20 match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, scheduled to be held at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore on October 29.
Speaking to Geo News on Saturday, the IG admitted that sluggishness on the part of police had led to the attack on Sri Lankan team in Lahore in 2009.
IG Nawaz pointed out that the provincial police had been providing the best possible security to the visiting cricket teams over the last two years. The Sri Lankan team would also be provided foolproof security, he said.
About the recent spate of knife attacks in Karachi, the IG offered to help in every possible way in arresting the culprits involved in the attacks.
However, no such criminal group exists in Punjab, he added.
