Meanwhile, an armed gang of robbers is once again active in Rawalpindi city looting people and shopkeepers at gun point.
According to eye witnesses, a group of armed robbers on motorcycles robbed a shopkeeper in Khayban-e-Sir area of the city at around 7 PM a couple of days back. The robbers were so daredevil that they also snatched the mobile phones of a few people who were present at the grocery shop. The people of the area said that the group, a few months back had also robbed shops and people walking in parks between Maghrib and Isha prayers at gunpoint and then they sped away without any fear warning the victims not to raise their voice after they leave otherwise they would pay heavily.
