Sindh police chief orders crackdown against fake Sindh Police number plates
KARACHI: Inspector General of Sindh Police Dr Kaleem Imam has directed police to launch ‘an organised crackdown’ against motorcycles and other vehicles using fake Sindh Police license number plates across the province.
Dr Kaleem Imam directed all the relevant authorities and departments to launch a seven-day drive in this regard, starting on March 20.
“It has been observed with great concern that there are number of vehicles witnessed with fictitious Sindh Police number plates plying on the roads particularly in Karachi.
“It is believed that these vehicles are left unchecked and considered unsuspicious by the police units, patrolling within their respective limits,” read the letter issued by the operations AIG police.
The AIG said such ignorance provided opportunity for the criminals to easily roam around for their ulterior motives. The issue required appropriate attention and immediate measures to curb the tendency of such violation, he added.
The campaign against fake number plates would end on March 25.
IG Kaleem Imam ordered that station police and traffic police with mutual coordination and cooperation should make the said campaign successful.
On January 26, Karachi Police stopped vehicles of senior political party leaders during a crackdown against fancy number plates in the metropolis.
