KARACHI: Sindh Home Minister Suhail Anwar Siyal on Tuesday underlined installation of tracker system in motor bikes as a counter terrorism strategy, ARY News reported.
“Since bikes are used in 80 percent of crimes, there is an intense need to make installation of tracker system in bikes mandatory,” he said while speaking during the meeting with Site Association of Industry members.
He assured them of providing full protection to the industrial units under Safe City Project through CCTV monitoring system.
Citing horrific criminal incidents of knife-wielding man and Ansarul Sharia that were carried out on motorcycles, Siyal said Excise Department would be directed to install number plates on front of motor bikes also.
The home minister apprised the meeting that steps were afoot to outsource hotline 15.
Expressing satisfaction over depletion of crimes graph, he said “Earlier, henious crimes like kidnapping for ransom were rampant and now only street crime incidents take place and that too have slumped lately.”
He said measures were being taken to improve law and order situation in SITE area and shortage of number of policemen would also be resolved.
Expressing apprehensions over wall-chalking, Siyal said graffiti and use of loudspeakers were banned under the National Action Plan.
“Graffiti is being inscribed on walls during the night. Strict action would be taken against those doing wall-chalking to deface the city,” he said.
