A Bin Qasim Association of Trade and Industry (BQATI) delegation called on Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad at the Governor’s House and informed him about the rising street crimes and kidnappings of industrialists in the Bin Qasim Town and its adjoining areas. According to a press release issued on Sunday, the delegation was led by BQATI Patron-in-Chief Mian Muhammad Ahmed. The delegation informed the governor that criminal gangs force cars to stop at gun point in Bin Qasim Town and snatch cellular phones, wallets, laptops and other valuables from commuters. These incidents are happening in an areas starting from Quaidabad to Razzaqabad as well as in the Landhi industrial area.
The members of the delegation regretted that these areas have become no-go zones for industrialists and the common people; and people are forced to pay extortion money to gangsters. The delegation pointed out that many foreigners including Japanese, Europeans and Chinese working in these areas have suffered at the hands of criminals. The governor told the delegation that the government’s attention is focused on providing the business community with a secure environment so that they can carry out their activities without any fear. He said that the Port Qasim Authority is providing better security facilities than other industrial areas.
Dr Ebad said that an effective security mechanism would be evolved with the collective efforts of Rangers, police and the business community. On the occasion, the Karachi police chief assured the delegation that the police will provide all the required support to the industrialists of the area. He also requested the delegation to report any crime taking place in the area to the Bin Qasim TPO.
