Sindh Bolsters Countermeasures Against Street Crimes and Katcha Dacoits

Street Crimes

KARACHI: Sindh Apex Committee, chaired by Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, has devised a comprehensive strategy to tackle the surge in street crimes and abductions by katcha dacoits.

In a statement issued by the CM House, special measures have been outlined for stringent monitoring of stolen mobile phones and vehicles sold in Karachi markets.

The committee directed the reactivation of Shaheen Force and the overhaul of Madadgar-15 by the police department.

Furthermore, police pickets will be established along the River Indus to curb the activities of dacoits in the katcha area.

CM Shah emphasized that ransom recovery would be deemed as terror financing, with stringent measures planned to crush facilitators.

Regarding street crimes, the meeting highlighted a decrease in theft cases, attributing improved policing. However, snatching incidents of vehicles and mobile phones witnessed a slight increase.

To address these concerns, the committee instructed the police chief to deploy a dedicated motorcycle squad for patrolling identified hotspots.

Additionally, the implementation of e-tagging for repeat offenders was recommended, with a pilot project slated to begin with 4,000 devices.

Efforts to combat dacoits included the construction of police pickets along the River Indus, resulting in the rescue of numerous kidnapping victims.

Plans to secure the right bank of the river were also discussed to safeguard adjoining districts.

Moreover, the meeting addressed issues of illegal spectrum usage and anti-smuggling operations, highlighting collaborative efforts among law enforcement agencies.

Awareness campaigns against drug abuse were also initiated, leading to a significant number of narcotics-related arrests and seizures.

Attended by key officials including the Home Minister, Mayor Karachi, Corps Commander Karachi, and Chief Secretary among others, the meeting underscored the government’s commitment to ensuring the safety and security of citizens through proactive measures and inter-agency cooperation.
