Mo­bile snatch­ing

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - SANA ISHAQUE

I want to draw the at­ten­tion of the read­ers, par­tic­u­larly the new IG Sindh, to­wards in­creas­ing crime of mo­bile snatch­ing in Karachi. The law and or­der sit­u­a­tion is quite un­sat­is­fac­tory in Karachi. Ev­ery body is wor­ried about the law­less­ness. The po­lice is not do­ing its du­ties to check all th­ese il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties. From last few days many cases of mo­bile snatch­ing and rob­bery were re­ported. In fact on last Satur­day my friend’s mo­bile was snatched by two peo­ple who were on bike. They came and snatched his hand watch, money and mo­bile. Th­ese types of cases are still hap­pen­ing al­most daily. Will any­body try to stop them com­mit this crime? Snatch­ers shoot with­out any care. As the re­sult, cit­i­zens might lose their lives along with their costly be­long­ings.

Th­ese crim­i­nals de­serve some kind of ef­fec­tive pun­ish­ment. It is the duty of the po­lice to in­ten­sify its in­ves­ti­ga­tions to stop such cruel ac­tiv­i­ties and bring the crim­i­nals to book. Karachi is at the top of the list of cell phone snatch­ing across the coun­try. The con­cerned au­thor­i­ties should look into the mat­ter and try to im­prove the law and or­der sit­u­a­tion. I re­quest the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to take some se­ri­ous steps to re­solve this is­sue. —Via email
