No de­cline in street vi­o­lence

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - ARSHIA RASHEED

With ever grow­ing pop­u­la­tion street crimes in Karachi are in­creas­ing day by day. Daily we hear of rob­beries and snatch­ings. Ac­cord­ing to the sta­tis­tics over 12000 mo­bile phones were snatched or ei­ther stolen dur­ing the cur­rent year. More­over 20 cit­i­zens lost their lives while re­sist­ing rob­bery at­tempts in the mega city. Th­ese rob­bers come well pre­pared with weapons to com­mit the crimes. It is not just dur­ing night time but day time as well.

I would urge police and Rangers to es­ca­late their op­er­a­tions against cul­prits be­cause the life of Karachi­ites has be­come mis­er­able due to pre­vail­ing sit­u­a­tion. — Via email
