Karachi: Pillion-riding banned for ten days

KARACHI: The Home Department of Sindh has imposed a ban on pillion-riding in Karachi for ten days, which will be in effect from 12 am tonight, ARY News reported.

The Home Secretary Sindh, Niaz Abbasi told that the ban was imposed after a request made by the Sindh Police, in the wake of worsened law and order situation of the metropolis.

Sindh Police had requested the authorities to restrict pillion-riding in the city for ten days, due to increasing number of target killings, sectarian target-killings and other street crimes, however journalists women and elderly people will be exempted from this.

This has been a normal practice, yet the ban has never proven to be fruitful in scaling down increasing number of crimes.
