KARACHI: Sindh IG Allah Dino Khawaja urged on Wednesday the citizens to use licensed weapons for self-defence against criminals.
"The citizens can use their licensed weapons for self-defence. One will definitely resist and use their licensed weapon if robbers entered their home," said Khawaja, while talking to the media at the Central Police Office (CPO). Khawaja was parsing efforts of a citizen, Y*, who had recently shot robbers in a Nazimabad neighbourhood.

Two robbers were critically wounded and later, succumbed to their injuries at Abbasi Shaheed Hospital a few days ago when they were trying to loot Y* in Nazimabad within the limits of Rizvia police station. Y* shot them with his licensed pistol.
