The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) lawmakers on Friday expressing their deep concern over the rising incidents of street crime in Karachi said the ncompetent and biased Sindh government has left the citizens at the mercy of robbers.

In a joint statement, MQM-P parliamentarian said that the police and the provincial administration have failed to control the criminal elements involved in the incidents of snatching, theft and robbery in the city.

During Ramazan, robbers have made it their routine to rob and kill the citizens of Karachi daily without any fear.

The sharp increase in snatching of motorcycles, cars, mobile phones is a big question mark on the performance of police and administration.

They said that handing over the metropolitan city to police officers from remote areas of Sindh is a biased act. In such circumstances, it is inevitable to establish a local policing system in Karachi like other cities of the country.

The Haqparast members of the assembly demanded the Prime Minister of Pakistan Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faiz Isa and Governor Sindh Kamran Khan Tesori that they should show mercy to the citizens of Karachi and take notice of the increased incidents of street crimes in the city. The lives and property of the citizens of Karachi should be protected and relieved from this financial, physical and mental torture.
