These are the 13 places where you are more likely to get mugged in Karachi, according to CPLC
KARACHI: Citizens Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) has named 13 locations where people of Karachi are more susceptible to becoming victims of street crimes, ARY News reported.
ARY News correspondent Salman Lodhi said over 33,000 cell phones and around 20,000 motorcycles were snatched last year in the megapolis. While, not even 10 percent of the snatched valuables could be recovered of them.
A senior officer claims that the huge volume of street crimes in the biggest city of Pakistan is due to the damaged roads.
“Rampant traffic jams hinder police in reaching right away at crime scene. Whereas, armed men easily rob people because of the damaged roads, which slow down vehicles speed,” he said.
These are the sensitive locations identified by CPLC:
- Baloch Colony Bridge
- Aladdin Park
- Nipa Chowrangi
- Gulshan Chowrangi
- University Road
- Essa Nagri
- Millennium Mall
- Tariq Road
