The graph of street crimes is going up every single day in the metropolitan city. Two armed thieves on Thursday looted additional session judge Naveed Hussain along with his family in Baloch Colony. They snatched mobile phones from the family and fled. 

Police have registered an FIR of the incident.

In another crime incident, six armed robbers barged into the shop of a barber in Dastagir FB Area Block and started looting the citizens. After snatching cash and valuables from them, the outlaws opened fire in the air. As a result, a passerby and two other persons including a policeman sustained injuries. 

The dacoits fired almost 20 rounds. 

The man who was killed by the firing was identified as Salman, s/o Ibrahim. He worked as a manager in an IT company. 

Residents said Salaman went over there to fetch water from the filtered plant and was hit by the dacoits’ bullet. They said that since yesterday, 9 incidents of crime were reported in the area. A few days ago, dacoits looted a woman at her doorstep. They regretted that police efficiency was zero in Joharabad.
