KARACHI: As law enforcement agencies count successes in ongoing operation against terrorists, banned outfits and militant wings of political and religious organisations, Karachiites face a sudden rise in street crimes, which has cost four lives so far during the first 10 days of Ramazan and raised fears for the days ahead.
Official data shows a sharp rise in cell phone and motorbike snatching in the first 10 days of holy month compared to crime rate during the corresponding period before Ramazan, indicating renewed activities of armed groups and individuals in the city despite ongoing Rangers-led operation.
“405 mobile phones were snatched at gunpoint during the first 10 days of Ramazan compared to 338 in 10 days before the holy month,” said an official citing figures compiled by the Citizens-Police Liaison Committee (CPLC).
