According to a local newspaper report, Government of Punjab has approved acquisition of two helicopters for Punjab Police. Maybe that's why two separate bidding invitations appeared in newspapers.

Helicopters will be used for monitoring security arrangements for public/religious gatherings/rallies in the province and will have equipment for day & night operations including night vision cameras, search lights etc.

Helicopter type not mentioned in newspaper.

Saw a shiny green & white helicopter circling low over Lahore today. Apparently a western-built machine.

Probably a new acquisition for Punjab Police monitoring Friday prayer congregations security arrangements?
