The Inspector General of Police, Sindh Dr Syed Kaleem Imam said that the challenges that are being faced by Karachi Police are different from other cities as this city keeps a unique status internationally. People around the world, dignitaries, delegates, corporate sectors’ representatives and investors come to this city for tourism, business and hence the policing challenges ahead to Police here in Karachi are totally different. As well a huge influx of population is going on continuously as the people from across Pakistan come to this port city seeking jobs, medical care, etc; they also are linked to variety of problems and Police’s role is immensely overburdened in this city.
The Police force here in this city is required to stay alert 24/7 a week.
