Inspector General (IG) Sindh Mushtaq Ahmed Mahar has said that a strategy is being formulated to curb crimes in Karachi.

IG Sindh Mushtaq Ahmed Mahar, while talking to ARY News today, said that efforts are underway to curb the crimes in the port city. He expressed deep sorrow over the killing of a senior journalist Athar Mateen Ahmed.

He said that police forces will take steps to prevent journalists from facing such incidents.

In a separate statement, All Karachi Tajir Ittehad Chairman Atiq Mir criticised the Sindh authorities over deteriorated law and order situation that has badly affected the business activities in the metropolis.

Atiq Mir said the movement of cash from banks is a challenge nowadays as street criminals are roaming freely in every street of Karachi. He censured that all residential and business centres are on the range of dacoits.

He added that protocol duties and political affiliations have worsened the police performance. He demanded the higher authorities make high-level changes in the police department after taking action against the black sheep besides giving special powers to the Rangers for improving the law and order situation.
