Karachi Falls In World Crime Index, Out Of Top 10
Pakistan’s financial hub and one of the world’s largest cities went out of the top 10 in the World Crime Index and it’s a good news for the people of the country.
During the past 5 years, Karachi has made great progress in combating crime.
In 2014, Karachi was ranked 6th in the World Crime Index, which meant that the metropolis was the city with 6th highest crime rate in the world.
Now, Karachi stands at 70, ranked slightly ahead of London, Washington and Rome.
Director-General (DG) Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor credited the civil administration and the security forces, especially police and Sindh rangers for their valiant efforts. He also lauded the citizens of Karachi.
“Karachi at one point in time (2014) was 6th in World Crime Index. Alhamdulillah, today it’s at 70th with many first world cities behind. Credit to team of Civil Administration & Security Forces esp Int, Police & Sindh Rangers. Also to the citizens of Karachi. More stability InshAllah,” he tweeted.
In February, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Sindh Dr Syed Kaleem Imam presided over a meeting to access law and order situation in the city.
He also instructed police officials to visit the homes of crime-hit victims and their families under a victim support programme. He ordered the registration of FIRs of crime-affected citizens without any delay.
