Karachi citizen runs over suspected robbers in Jauhar


KARACHI: A citizen in Karachi on Sunday ran over two suspected robbers as they tried to flee after allegedly looting him, killing one and injuring the other.

Police reported that Tariq Javed was looted by two men on a motorcycle as he exited an ATM in Gulistan-i-Jauhar.

Javed then followed the robbers in his car and rammed into them, killing one and injuring the other, a station house officer said as he recorded the citizen’s statement.

Javed, a student at an engineering university, said that the men had stolen his cellphone and Rs 4,000.

A police officer on duty at the site of the incident said that the money and cellphone had been recovered from the possession of the robbers. He added that police are checking to see whether the robbers have a criminal record.

Last month, a citizen Mariam Nadir was rewarded by the Rangers for running over robbers on a bike and injuring them while she was in a car in Nazimabad.

In a similar incident in 2016, Sindh Inspector General (IG) AD Khowaja offered a cash reward to a citizen who shot two suspected robbers dead. On the occasion, the IGP persuaded Karachi’s citizens to make similar efforts to help police fight crimes in the metropolis.
