KARACHI: Armed men snatched a laptop from the employee of British Consulate in Karachi in Defence Housing Authority (DHA) on Thursday.  The consulate’s driver and another man were travelling in a car on Khayaban-e-Mujahid when another car stopped them and the people inside robbed them, said Clifton SP Dr Farrukh said. “There was no diplomat in the car. It’s not a big deal,” he said. “The consulate has not even lodged a complaint with the police.” SP Dr Farrukh said the laptop was in someone’s personal use and the consulate would have informed police if it carried any vital diplomatic information.
