Apex committee meeting was held on Monday
Sindh’s apex committee has decided to crack down against street criminals.
The committee, which was headed by Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, agreed that special magistrates should hear cases pertaining to street crimes. The people will be sentenced to three to seven years in prison.
“We will work hard to counter street crime,” remarked Shah.
Sindh Information Minister Murtaza Wahab remarked that street crime will be divided into two categories; petty crimes and those involving weapons.
Crimes in which weapons will be used will be made a part of the Anti-Terrorism Act, he said. Special focus will be placed on the theft of motorcycles and mobile phones.
The government will crackdown shops where spare parts of motorcycles and mobile phones are sold.
