Street crimes

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - MISHI KHAN

Street crime has be­come a com­mon is­sue th­ese days in the city of Karachi and al­most ev­ery­where the youth is tar­geted in th­ese crimes and the most com­mon street crime is the snatch­ing of mo­bile phones. Th­ese rob­bers come well armed and well pre­pared both phys­i­cally and psy­cho­log­i­cally to com­mit the crimes. Th­ese peo­ple over­power the vic­tim by fear and weapons.

The young peo­ple are there­fore, very much in fear, whether to carry a mo­bile phone or cash while trav­el­ling at any time of the day. It is not just night­time that is dan­ger­ous but also day­time. Any­time, any­place and by any means th­ese cul­prits get hold of help­less and in­no­cent peo­ple walk­ing on the street and rob them of all valu­ables, cash and mo­bile phones. I re­quest the au­thor­i­ties re­spon­si­ble for se­cu­rity in the city to fur­ther keep a watch on th­ese cul­prits that are a dan­ger to the residents of the city. —Karachi
