Snatching girl Mobile purses at Streets of Karachi
Street crimes have continued unabated in Karachi as the criminals have murdered as many as nine citizens over resistance and snatched more than 1600 mobile phones in just 12 days.
According to details, more than 60 mobile phones are being taken away from the locals while 530 motorbikes have been grabbed from the residents.
The robbers have also looted 41 cars. On the other hand, at least 27 people have sustained injuries in different shooting incidents.
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.
