Karachi being the most versatile of all cities; is also the city which never sleeps. This city has homes some 2.5 crores, people and is still expanding. When a city this vast is still pouring by more people, then comes more question of proper infrastructure, education, housing schemes, and safety!
Safety is something that no one wants to compromise on. And when a city is having a population this big and spread this vast; crime rate increases majorly!
Just 2 weeks back the nation was shaken by the news of a 10-year-old Amal Umer; as told by her parents that on the night on 13th August, after being robbed by the mugger on the busiest road of Karachi their daughter got hit by an astray bullet. The bullet later was proven to be of police’s as after they got robbed, police fired on muggers and in the result, they lost their innocent child.
People were still in the shock of Amal’s death but what happened yesterday, broke many hearts!
