Street crime is very common in Karachi and almost every 5th person (male) has faced this issue. Police on many occasions have claimed that they will tackle this issue. However till now they have failed miserably.
On Rashid Minhas Road near Lasania Restaurant street crime is on rise. On service road mobile snatching is very common. Side mirror theft is also done frequeltnly. Many people on social media have complained about this area. This service road has become a hub of snatching and theft. ‘Halaat Updates’ group on Facebook is flooded about this place.
People never feel safe when they go outside. It is high time that Safe City project is launched in Karachi. this demand has been made several times but for Sindh Government this project is like sending a satellite to mars.
