Consecutive incidents of house robbery in Rawalpindi’s Satellite Town area

Unfortunately, the gun control mechanism appears largely beyond the stated agenda as the country’s ruling elite feels dutiful with the mere calling shots sometimes by the incumbent chief executive and sometimes by the real power sectors.

Hypnotized more or less verbally about countering the looters of national wealth, mainly the political high-ups, the government seems less worried about intensely growing street crime and lootings of public wealth at the hands of robbers and wanted criminals.

Not only these dacoits loot and plunder the public property but they also remain largely unhesitant about taking the lives of people with a mere shot of bullet.

Unfortunately, the gun control mechanism appears largely beyond the stated agenda as the country’s ruling elite feels dutiful with the mere calling shots sometimes by the incumbent chief executive and sometimes by the real power sectors.

Given the deep-rooted feudalism, there exist sympathizers within the governing circles who leave the general public solely on the mercy of local high-ups and even turn down or divert the judicial discourse as to the will of the prevailing mindset that disallows any changs in status quo.

In yet another cold-blooded incident of robbery at a house in Rawalpindi, the cold-blooded robbers killed an elderly woman by forcefully entering the house. Such incidents will go unabated until and unless law enforcers abide by their duties with full vigor and made free from political interference.

According to the report of a local media house, a 90-year-old woman was killed after being suffocated by dacoits who raided her house in Satellite Town early on Monday.

It was the second house robbery within the same area within just a week. The deceased Taj Ansari was offering her morning prayers at the time when the dacoits forcefully entered the house, collected the cash which was in local and foreign currency, and valuables.

They killed the women by suffocating her with dupatta before leaving the house. The other two residents of the house were also left injured.

Residents feel insecure even inside their houses, according to a resident who talked to the news outlet. Reportedly, the station house officer of the New Town was served with a show-cause notice for negligence and given a 72-hour deadline to arrest the culprit.

  • Very sad
    No record of people living, entering or leaving the big cities.
    And no system to track criminals.

  • From the last six months specially in satellite town Rawalpindi crime has gone beyond limit. Every single day car lifting, robbery, mobile n purse snatching is reported. Double road, 6th, 7th, 8th roads are the main areas where these crimes are getting common.on the other hand no security measures has been taken by the new town police station despite the severity of the matter. In the past we did notice police check points and dolphin scoud petrolling the area which now no where to be seen in routine. Since the time new government imposed strict tax rules and seeking source of income and business credentials people started withdrawing money from local banks and started investing in rental property and this is quite visible in satellite town where within a year landlords demolished their houses converting them into 3 to 4 story flats and buildings. This sudden development by the locals has proven risk of security as many outside tenants may found involved in hideous crimes directly or indirectly
