KARACHI: I would like to draw the attention of the authorities concerned towards the issue of mobile-snatching in Karachi. This has gradually transformed into a serious crime and is reported on daily basis. It has become a great threat to people and countless lives over the years have been lost due to this crime. Walking on the street, riding a motorbike or driving a car, all have become dangerous activities because of the possibility of running into a mobile snatcher.
The law and order situation is quite unsatisfactory in the city with mobile-snatching ostensibly being the most reported crime. However, the police’s inability to control it is there for all to see. I want to send out a message to the authorities concerned to please take steps towards the elimination of this crime in Karachi. We have had enough of this state of affairs.
