Rising street crimes in Sindh

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - HUS­SAIN THEBO

The post­ing of IG Sindh Mr. A.D. Khawaja comes like a wave of fresh air in a suf­fo­cated en­vi­ron­ment as peo­ple of Prov­ince took a sigh of re­lief with the hope that new IG Sindh would re­store law and or­der in the Prov­ince and po­lice force would be able to achieve tar­gets set by its leader.

Mr. Khawaja is an up­right po­lice of­fi­cer and would be suc­cess­ful in re­sist­ing the political pres­sure for the post­ing of SHOs and other se­nior of­fi­cers but it is un­for­tu­nate still we have not no­ticed any chang­ing sys­tem be­cause graph of street crimes con­tin­ues to go up with­out be­ing no­ticed.

In all the in­dus­trial ar­eas of Karachi the main roads and by-lanes have been dug up on cru­cial and im­por­tant points where ve­hi­cles slow down and the peo­ple in­volved in the street crimes rid­ing mo­tor­cy­cles in­ter­cept and take away cell phones and valu­ables from the peo­ple. The con­nivance of Po­lice is so vis­i­ble that can be seen by the very fact that such in­ci­dents are not of any con­se­quence in Po­lice record. IG Sindh needs to take strict ac­tion? — Karachi
