An­gry mob sets ablaze 2 da­coits

Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

OB­SERVER RE­PORT KARACHI —Lo­cals be­long­ing to Karachi’s area of Ko­rangi on Satur­day set ablaze two da­coits who shot a cit­i­zen and in­jured him.

Ini­tially, the two da­coits were tor­tured by the an­gry mob and were then set on fire.

The da­coits tried to en­ter a shop be­long­ing to a per­son named Ahmed who tried to stop their at­tempt from loot­ing him.

The da­coits shot Ahmed and in­jured him. Both of the cul­prits were caught red handed by peo­ple near the shop who were fu­ri­ous over the in­ci­dent.

The bodies of both the da­coits were par­tially burnt after the mob set them on fire. Po­lice ar­rived just in time to save their lives and trans­ferred them to a hospi­tal.

Cit­i­zens stated that po­lice has failed to curb street crimes hence the lo­cals had to deal with the sit­u­a­tion on their own.

There seems a ten­dency of gen­eral pub­lic in this part of Karachi to take the law into their hands. On May 3, 2015, an in­fu­ri­ated mob burnt two sus­pected rob­bers alive who had gunned down in the same lo­cal­ity for killing a po­lice­man.

The of­fi­cial of Anti-Car Lift­ing Cell was on his way to home in Ko­rangi no. 2 area when three rob­bers in­ter­cepted him and tried to rob him. The ACLC of­fi­cial shot and in­jured two of the rob­bers. The cop also sus­tained bul­let wounds in an ex­change of gun­fire with the cul­prits.
