High Frequency of Street Crimes!!
Last night I come across two consecutive incidents in a minute, but similar happenings in both cases… Cell Phone Snatching… Here’s the story:
I was traveling by an overly crowded mini bus and waiting for my stop… suddenly a man jumped out from the running bus and ran away from the bus… an unfortunate man cried “Mobile… Mobile!” and jumped out to follow the cell phone picker the scene ended. After some moments the bus stopped and I was on my way… again a man was running furiously behind the other… same story but different persons and a different cell phone.
Although these things are now a part of most metropolis but I feel the frequency of such crimes is getting higher and higher with every passing day. People are afraid to carry their precious portable devices. I recalled a photo printed in The Daily Dawn that a foreigner tourist capturing images at M.A. Jinnah Road, Karachi with a gunman for his security.
Is there any method to control such crimes?
