The Punjab Police Department has prohibited its officers from using TikTok, a Chinese video-sharing platform. The Punjab police department has banned all cops from accessing TikTok during working hours, according to reports.
The police department has issued a warning that if a video of an officer becomes viral on any social media platform, they will face severe disciplinary punishment.
The decision was made after complaints were lodged with the Prime Minister’s Citizen’s Portal about on-duty police officers using “TikTok.”

“This behaviour harms the police department’s soft image, dignity, and prestige,” according to a statement.
All RPOs in the province have received letters from the AIG Operations Punjab.
Meanwhile, the Punjab police department has officially demanded that the popular mobile game PUBG be banned.
The Punjab Inspector General reported the issue with Pakistan Telecom Authority (PTA) in a letter to the Punjab Home Department, claiming that PUBG is corrupting the younger generation.
According to the letter, the young generation is depressed as a result of failure to meet the game’s objectives, and so the online game should be outlawed. On the directions of IG Punjab, AIG Operations sent the letter.
