In a fresh strategy to check the surging rate of carjacking in the city, the police have decided to relocate barricaded checkpoints. For some time now, not a single day goes by without at least three to four thefts in the city. From now on, we will witness more patrolling in our city as the situation is getting out of control. Though this a big eyesore but is certainly a good sign. Lets just hope this strategy works in favor of our police force and our city. Earlier, the police used multiple techniques to check the increasing car theft in the city. Police in private vehicles were deputed for patrolling, however, this has failed. It is clear that creative and scientific ways would help, where these useless traditional methods of controlling crime had failed. FAHED SAEED, Islamabad, February 7.
