Lahore witnessing rapid surge in crime amid Ramadan celebration

Throwing police strategy to decline crime rate out of gear, criminals in Lahore city are looting an average of 200 people every day in Pakistan's Lahore city.

The first 10 days of Ramazan remained very hard for the citizens as over 1,000 crime incidents were reported during that period, reported Dawn News.

According to some statistics, nearly 74,000 crime incidents, including murder, attempted murder, robbery and theft were reported during the last 80 days in Lahore alone.

Recording over 500 street crimes, March 20 was the hardest day recorded for police to tackle situation in the city.

The City Division remained at the top among other divisions where a total of 15,684 crime incidents were reported during the above-mentioned period followed by the Cantonment Division with 14,782 and Model Town Division 13,613 crime incidents.

Some sources attribute to Dawn News the rising crime in Lahore to the poor performance of the divisional SPs who lack the potential to deal with the hardened criminals while others blame poor challan submission ratio by the investigation police.

Sources say the criminals are particularly targeting motorcycles, an economic mean of transportation for ordinary citizens, by snatching them at gunpoint or stealing around 150 motorcycles daily.
