Additional Inspector General of Police (IG) Sindh Javed Alam Odho said that steps should be taken to eradicate crime in Mehran Town and Korangi in collaboration with KATI. Planning and contingency plan will be done in Korangi Causeway to deal with the expected floods due to Balochistan rains.

He was expressing these views while addressing a luncheon meeting at the Korangi Association of Trade and Industry (KATI).

On the occasion, KATI President Salman Aslam, KITE Limited CEO Zubair Chhaya, Vice President Farrukh Qandhari, UBG President Zubair Tufail, KATI’s Former Presidents Zahid Saeed, Saleem-uz-Zaman, Danish Khan, Fazal-e-Jalil, Ikram Rajput, DIG East Muqaddas Haider, DIG Traffic Ahmed Nawaz Cheema, Javed Yousafzai and other senior police officers and members of KATI were also present.

Additional IG Sindh Javed Alam Odho said that we are aware of the rise in street crime in Karachi but overall the crime situation was much better than before.

He said that according to the data released by CPLC, the overall street crime in Karachi has decreased by 30 percent while the theft of motorcycles has been reduced to 40 percent.

The police department is short of manpower. In the rapidly expanding city of Karachi, the police force is very small.

Javed Alam Odho further said that police patrolling, police check posts, and snap checking are being increased in industrial and commercial areas of Karachi on a priority basis.

Police officers have been directed to increase the police presence in the city and eliminate unnecessary activities. He said that the investigation complex was being shifted to Korangi at the request of KATI, adding that some offices had already been shifted to Shah Faisal in this regard.

Earlier, KATI President Salman Aslam said that crime has reduced recently but street crime is on the rise.

President KATI said that police patrolling should be increased in Karachi especially in Korangi to discourage criminal elements.

He said that the officers posted in Korangi are performing their duties honestly, which has improved the traffic situation in the industrial area.
