The criminals were pursuing the police officer as he was leaving a bank. CCTV footage of the event has the police starting their investigation.
The development followed the city police chief’s assertion that, despite the widespread concern over Karachi’s rising crime rate, the city’s condition is not as dire as it is being portrayed to be.
Jawed Alam Odho, the chief of police in Karachi, denied accusations that crime was on the rise in the city during a press conference on Friday at the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KCCI).
The residents of Karachi are hurting themselves because he said that Lahore and other places had higher crime rates.
