Malik Mohammad Saad Shaheed. (May 19, 1959 – January 27, 2007)

For those who don't know. Additional Inspector General of Police Malik Muhammad Saad Khan Shaheed was two-star rank senior police officer, engineer, and former Chief Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) of Peshawar. He was in charge of security in the provincial capital of Peshawar, he was martyred in a suicide bomb attack while on duty reviewing security arrangements during a Shia procession during the Islamic month of Muharram in January 2007.

Malik Saad was martyred in a suicide attack on January 27, 2007 when Peshawar was hit by a bomb blast killing a minimum of 11 people. The suicide attack was occurred in Peshawar’s crowded Qissa Khawani Bazaar just before a Muharram procession was to pass through the route.

Malik Saad’s courage, determination, sense of morals and principles set a precedent for his colleagues, juniors and new inductees in the Police Service of Pakistan, particularly for those from his native province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. Malik Saad was extremely popular amongst the people of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and is fondly remembered as a legendary figure of sorts, especially in small towns and villages where tales of his heroic exploits and humanitarian deeds have become a significant part of folklore. His funeral was attended by over 200,000 people and his legacy remains an integral part of the history of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province and the Civil Services of Pakistan.
