Sindh Home Minister Proposes Dolphin Force to Curb Street Crime in Karachi

KARACHI: Sindh Home Minister Ziaul Hassan Lanjar visited the Karachi Police Office, where he chaired a high-level meeting to discuss and address the city’s pressing law and order situation.

During this visit, the city police chief, Additional Inspector General (Addl. IG) Imran Yaqoob Minhas, provided an extensive briefing to the home minister. In his briefing, he proposed the establishment of a specialized squad modeled after Lahore’s Dolphin Force to effectively combat street crime. He recommended the procurement of 1,800 motorcycles specifically for patrolling purposes, emphasizing the need for enhanced mobility and swift response capabilities.

A spokesperson for the police reported that the police chief also requested additional resources, including 1,100 vehicles, 2,000 pistols, and 5,000 anti-riot kits to equip the new motorcycle force adequately. Furthermore, he highlighted the necessity of recruiting 9,200 additional policemen to strengthen the police presence and operational capacity in Karachi.

Addl. IG Minhas highlighted that the police are actively engaged in comprehensive measures aimed at protecting Chinese nationals, experts, and other foreigners residing or working in the city. He mentioned that relevant stakeholders have been involved in these security efforts to ensure a coordinated and effective approach.

He also noted a gradual reduction in incidents such as car and motorcycle snatching, mobile phone theft, and killings during robbery attempts. He attributed this positive trend to the implementation of effective policing practices and continuous, proactive actions taken against criminals.

Additionally, the police chief announced plans to hold regular monthly meetings focused on law and order to ensure ongoing evaluation and improvement of security measures.

It is noteworthy that the Dolphin Force, an elite unit of the Punjab police, was launched in 2016 by then Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif to specifically address and combat street crime in the region. This model is now being considered for implementation in Karachi to enhance the city’s law enforcement capabilities.
