Karachi Police Chief Discloses 31 Fatalities in Early-Year Robberies

The Karachi Police Chief disclosed that a staggering 31 individuals have lost their lives, while over 80 others sustained injuries, in the initial two months of the year due to a surge in street crimes. This disturbing trend has been punctuated by tragic events, notably a robbery at a vegetable market near Malir Halt, targeting three traders.

The traders, who had set out to the market during the early hours, fell prey to robbers who, in a brazen act, opened fire, resulting in injuries and loss of possessions. Shockingly, the injured traders informed the police that this wasn't the first time such an incident occurred at the same location, emphasizing the audacity of the criminals.
