KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah while chairing a meeting to discuss the law & order situation in the city praised the police team for recovering two kidnap victims from Baldia.

He expressed his desire to cultivate this spirit of dedication and hard work in the police force so that the city could become a peaceful and liveable megalopolis.

The meeting was attended by Additional IG Karachi Imran Yakoob, DIG Mukadas Hyder, and the police party that participated in the operation to rescue two kidnapped persons. They included SSP AVCC Zafar Siddiqui, DSP Qaiser Shah, Inspector, Abid Hussain, Sub Inspector Ghulam Rasool, Head Constable Tariq Samad, Khawar Yusuf, lady police Constable Aresha Naz.

Shah said that he was not satisfied with the law & order situation in the city. “I know the police were working hard but special focus was needed in the hotspots where the crime rate was high,” he said and directed additional IG to strengthen such police stations where the crime ratio has increased.

Additional IG Karachi Imran Yakoob told the CM that the crime rate in the city has been recorded at 166 cases per day means less than one per police station. He added that the crime rate in the other big cities of other provinces was high but even then, the situation was being controlled through extensive checking, patrolling and intelligence.

The CM said that every day people were being killed for resisting the robberies. “This is quite painful, and it becomes our responsibility to protect the life, liberty and property of the citizen by hook or by crook,” he said and directed the Additional IG to replace the lethargic police officers with efficient and hardworking.

Rescue of kidnap victims:

Additional IG Police Imran Yakoob informed the CM that a raid was conducted on Sunday (April 7), with the assistance of modern technical devices at Baldia No 02, near Food Street at Plot No.F.247 Baldia site in Karachi. During the police encounter, four kidnappers - Sabir, Inayat Rehman, Hazrat Ali, and Wahidullah - were arrested in an injured condition on the spot. The abductees, Shahid, and Abdullah were successfully rescued from the clutches of the accused.

The CM was further informed that a gang of criminals, operating from a UAE state, was involved in kidnapping innocent people for ransom. Imran Yakoob stated that he had traced all the clues and data of the gangsters and would arrest them with the support of UAE authorities.

The CM appreciated the police force's hard work and dedication and stressed the need for a similar spirit in the future to make the city peaceful and liveable. The police have been provided with the latest technology, weapons, and gadgets, which can aid in controlling crime.

Murad Ali Shah said that he has sent IGP Ghulam Nabi to visit the Riverine area and ensure the safe recovery of kidnapped persons. The CM expressed concern over the increasing street crime in the city and kidnapping for ransom in the Kutcha area, and he emphasized that the police, with the support of Rangers and other law enforcement agencies, must take strict actions to eliminate the criminals.
