A special ceremony was held by the KP police in Afridi's honour, during which KP IG Moazzam Jah Ansari pinned the badges of honorary DSP on the pacer.
For the first time, Afridi was seen in a police uniform at the ceremony.

Highlighting the services of the force, he saluted the police.
"My father represented the police," he said, adding that his brother is still working in the department. The cricketer said that the duty of a policeman is very difficult.
