Rawalpindi - The incidents of house robberies are increasing in various areas of Rawat.

The residents have been living in a great state of fear. They have lodged several complaints with Police Station Rawat but no action is being taken against the gangs of robbers who are plundering the people round the clock.

Unfortunately, the Rawat police are not filing cases against the robbers and are humiliating the complainants through different ways. A large number of victims of house robberies approached City Police Officer (CPO) Israr Ahmed Khan Abbasi and lodged complaints against SHO police station Rawat Malik Asif Nawaz and his subordinates.

Taking action, City Police Officer Israr Ahmed Khan Abbasi ordered Malik Asif Nawaz to control the crime rate in his jurisdiction, arrest the robbers or else he would forfeit his two years of service.

The CPO ordered the SHO to convene meetings with area people and convince them to hire watchmen for securing their houses.

He also asked patrolling should also be done in the crime infested areas to keep a vigil on suspicious elements. “All the shopkeepers should also hire security guards in markets,” the CPO said. He said that no negligence would be tolerated on part of police and strict action would be taken against the SHO in case any house robbery is reported in Rawat.
