The Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) has said that street crimes had turned into an multi-billion industry in the country’s commercial capital.

Police have failed to establish peace in Karachi, MQM-P leaders told a press conference today.

Nasreen Jalil said that we are tired of picking up bodies now it is not in our control to stop anger of the people. It is a matter of concern for us what kind of government is there, she added.

Speaking on the occasion, Ali Khursheedi said that no street is safe from crimes as 59 people have been killed in three months so far. Police have failed miserably here in the metropolis to check street crimes, he added.

He said that a provincial minister says that the MQM-P is doing only ranting and raving. Over 700 people have been injured in street crimes, the Sindh minister should apologize for his statements, Khursheedi urged.

He said that you (PPP) have been ruling for 15 years and are putting debris on the interim government, the MQM-P leader said and added the minister should apologize for his statements.

More than 1,000 mobile phones are stolen every day in Karachi and most of the people do not file an FIR due to police culture. Mobile phones worth Rs10.8 billion are stolen every year in port city, he claimed.

They MQM-P leaders said that the party would not remain silent on the matter and would soon come up with action plan.
