The degrees of about 6,825 traffic wardens would be verified and the traffic police authorities had distributed forms among them for the verification of their documents, sources said.

There are more than 6,825 traffic wardens serving in five major cities of the Punjab, including 2,450 in Lahore, 650 in Multan, 1,093 in Faisalabad, 420 in Gujranwala and 1,212 in Rawalpindi.

Sources said that more than 30 wardens were dismissed from service last year for having fake degrees.

When contacted, Traffic Police Punjab DIG Zahid Mehmood said, “Yes we have decided to verify all documents of the traffic wardens as well as their character.” He said that due to the fake degrees issue in the country it is vital to countercheck the degrees of the traffic wardens as there are complaints that many wardens have fake graduation degrees.
