Ensuring Security? Fears of a Karachiite

I have heard so much about the police and the security agencies in Karachi, that this vehicle surprised me.
Police reaching on the spot after robbery, cell phones snatched in front of police mobiles (and none bothers to save the poor soul from being robbed off), passengers deprived off their valuable possessions and again those police mobiles parked near by in peace.
I think, this city seriously needs some private watch over. Though I have no idea, if these agencies are really worth.

Soon after capturing the picture I hid my cell phone for the fear of someone popping out of this vehicle and snatching it away :-D

    recently they killed son of seth abid one of the richest man in pakistan… these security companies
    are not doing any background checks on the personnel they hire … just any one who is willing to accept 3000-3500 as monthly salary is hired without any question asked or without doing any background checks in criminal records etc… setting up a security company is quite easy i guess.. hire a retired army man as incharge he’ll hire all these incompetent security guards and off you go… you can then serve banks and start “guarding” them if you’ve got links with the bank highups

    wow, is that a security vehicle? What a nice reflection of tha “Pakistan Power” toba toba, I would not even carry chickens in that thing. Do we have any sense of logistics or at least aesthetics?

    I’d would feel much more afraid then secured traveling with them. If thats the vehicle I wonder how the uniform looks like, is it Loongi & Bunyan?

    their uniform is pakistani army dress. Most of security agencies are being run by moronic retired Army officers and they even forced govt to passed the law to keep a security guard out of shops and offices otherwise face the heat…

    We have to do something practical rather just informing each other ..
