Street crimes on the rise

CCTV footage of a citizen fighting off robber to save his motorcycle went viral on Friday (Sept 08). The footage dated September 4, shows a citizen commuting through a bike near Faisalabad city’s Railway Road when an armed robber tries to take his bike but the man fights back to snatch his gun. The citizen, while attempting to save his bike, also sustained a bullet on his leg but continued his fight forcing the robber to flee the scene without snatching the vehicle.
According to the reports, incident occurred near a police check-post on the road. A First Information Report has been registered but the copy shows the unidentified robber has only been implicated in a firing case. Yet the streets crimes are on the rise owing to which several citizens’ fear to travel in their own cities. We have hope from the new government that it will take serious steps to control streets crime in all our cities.
