Pick­pock­ets ram­pant in Jed­dah

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - M ASIF MEHMOOD KHAN

Over­seas Pak­ista­nis are fed up of pick­pock­ets out­side Pak­istan Con­sulate in Jed­dah. Over­seas Pak­ista­nis, who come to the con­sulate for re­dres­sal of their prob­lems, be­come easy prey to pick­pock­ets. This crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity has been con­tin­u­ing unchecked for the last 18 months.

Grav­ity of the sit­u­a­tion can be judged by the fact that seven peo­ple were de­prived of their valu­ables on Mon­day only. Nei­ther the po­lice nor the con­sulate of­fice is pay­ing any heed in this re­gard. I re­quest the Saudi Author­i­ties and Pak­istan For­eign Of­fice to take no­tice of the prob­lem. —Saudi Ara­bia
