KARACHI:

Sindh Additional Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Karachi Range Khadim Hussain Rind has announced the deployment of an additional 20 police personnel to the SITE Crime Monitoring Cell (SCMC), located within the premises of the SITE Association of Industry (SAI). This initiative aims to curb the increasing incidence of street crimes and maintain law and order in the area.

Rind made this announcement during his visit to the SAI, where he engaged with industrialists to discuss concerns regarding street crimes, snatching, and armed robbery. Industrialists welcomed the reinforcement of 20 police personnel to augment the existing workforce at the base.

Additionally, the AIGP mentioned ongoing anti-narcotics operations targeting suppliers of Gutka, mainpuri, and other illicit substances, resulting in the seizure of chewable items worth billions of rupees. He also highlighted a pending proposal to the Sindh government for the purchase of police vehicles, which, despite six months having passed, is yet to be approved.
