This refers to the letter, ‘Street crimes’ (Jun 11), by Salman Khan Soomro. The writer has rightly expressed his concern over rising street crimes. One of the reasons for the rise in street crime is the inadequate police patrolling .Obviously police officials cannot be present at each and every nook and corner of the city. However, they can be placed at most vulnerable spots.
There are many instances of effective crime control exercised by the police department across the world by placing undercover police officials at various points. The Sindh government can opt for undercover operations in Karachi to cope with the menace of street crimes.
