One is baffled at the rising incidents of street crimes in Karachi despite the presence of police and paramilitary Rangers.
The state of lawlessness in the city is giving the citizens sleepless nights, while the rulers find it appropriate to turn a blind eye to the happenings and get on with their lives as if nothing wrong is happening under their watch. Anti-social elements are actually ruling the city. The silence of the federal government to the growing sense of insecurity in the city is just as intriguing. It must act now if it is serious about doing anything in this critical guard.
The chief justice may also consider taking suo motu notice of the fast worsening law and order situation as the lives and property of the citizens are guaranteed under the Constitution and the existing situation is a violation of the basic rights of the people of Karachi.
