Street crime on rise in Karachi ahead of Eid

Staff Report

KARACHI: Karachi is witnessing a sharp surge in incidents of street crime ahead of Eid ul Adha.

According to official figures, 192 vehicles, 695 motorcycles and 978 mobile phones were either snatched or stolen in different parts of the country’s largest city over the last 15 days.

On showing resistance, nine citizens were murdered and 33 others were wounded.

Despite tall claims of heightened security, 122 people were robbed of cash outside banks and automated teller machines (ATMs).

The growing incidents of street crime have added to the woes of the inflation-hit public. SAMAA
