She was appointed as Station House officer of the model police station Daloryam at Pakpattan in June 2019. District police officer (DPO) of Pakpattan Ibadat Nisar who appointed her as SHO of Model police station Daloryam said in the response ” appointment of female police officers will help in dispensing protection to female victims.
Like many other societies, Pakistani females especially those from radical families also face sexual abuses. But they are unable to reach out for justice in a male dominant society. Many females stay silent after facing sexual abuse, because of the shame as they can’t face male police officers and their disgusting attitude. In these circumstances, a female police officer can be very helpful to hear female’s problems and solve them.
while interviewing British Broadcasting Channel (BBC), SHO Kulsoom Fatima said “I was always feeling anger after hearing about incidents of Sexual abuse with women, But That time I was unable to do anything for them.
“my anger or words can’t help female victims, but actions can do”
She included that after getting appointed as SHO, she got the opportunity to help women and minor girls. “I was appointed as sub-inspector in Punjab police after passing the competitive exam. So I got the position I always desired”.
Kulsoom Fatima included that her seniors assigned her the same task, she always desired. I was given the cases that were related to women.
