Crime rate soars in Islamabad

Crime rate in the Pakistani capital is increasing since the beginning of the New Year and outlaws are enjoying a field day.

This is creating a sense of insecurity among the residents, who believe that Islamabad has become a lucrative and safest place for the robbers and criminals due to the negligence of police.

At least nine persons were murdered and 11 died in road accidents during the first 26 days of the New Year.

The killers of four out of nine persons could not be identified while all the accused involved in these killings could not been arrested so far.

A property dealer, Sheikh Rashid, was shot dead by some unidentified persons at Daman-e-Koh. Later, his body was recovered from Bann village.

Mussarat Ali Khan, the station house officer of Kohsar police station, said yesterday that the relatives of the deceased told the police that late Rashid had no personal or business enmity with any one.

Unidentified persons killed another property dealer outside his house located in Sector G-9/3. Ajmal Warraich was on way to his home by his car when some unidentified persons intercepted him outside his residence and held him at gunpoint.

Verbal bouts reportedly took place between Amjad and the killers, which led to the violence. As a result of the clash, the unidentified persons opened fire at Amjad, who died on the spot. Heirs of the deceased told the area police that they had no suspicion in any one.

Tanveer Alam, another property dealer hailing from Humak Model Town located in the vicinity of Sihala police station, had also been killed by some unidentified persons. Later, his body was found from Korang nullah.
