Sindh Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ghulam Nabi Memon said while talking exclusively with 24NewsHD TV channel that street crime was an issue which needed all stakeholders to sit together for its solution.

“Regarding street crime, police have orders to file a report immediately,” the Sindh IGP said.

“From the number of cases registered, one can estimate how many cases of street crime have been reported,” he added.

“Police have been ordered to register the case of street crime immediately,” he said, adding: “If the media criticises the high number of street crime cases, we will respond positively.”

He also stressed the need for free registration so that the plaintiffs did not face any problem after registration of cases.

He also emphasised that the cases of street crime should be decided promptly, adding: “If cases are decided promptly, the requirements of justice will be fulfilled and the plaintiffs will also be pleased.”

IGP Memon said that a law should be made under which the property should immediately be transferred to the owner after the production of evidence in the court.

“The government wants the law and order situation to improve. I am doing what I have to do professionally,” he said.

“We will try our best to provide facilities to the people through best policing. The crime graph will be brought down through better policing,” he vowed.

IGP Memon said that according to the World Crime Index, the rate of crime in Karachi was declining with each passing day, adding that there was a time when Karachi was ranked 13th in the crime index.

“Today, Karachi ranks 129th in the World Crime Index,” he said, adding that Karachi was much better than other big cities of the world including Chicago, Kuala Lumpur, Dhaka, and New Delhi.

He also pointed out that Karachi should become better than good, adding: “We are trying our best to increase the police force and improve the investigation branch.”

The Sindh IGP said as many as 44,000 cameras had been installed with the help of citizens, adding that good things were being done for the betterment of the city.

“The safe city project will be completed soon with the cooperation of the Sindh government,” he declared.
