Amidst the escalating street crime incidents in the metropolis, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) has demanded to hand over control of Karachi to the army for three months, as the provincial government had totally failed to maintain law and order in the city.

The demand was put forward by MQM-P seniour deputy convener Mustafa Kamal in a press conference in Karachi.

"Sindh government and police have left Karachi at the mercy of dacoits and there is no area in Karachi where the lives and property of the citizens are safe," he said.

The former Karachi Mayor claimed that the PPP-led provincial government was not serious about providing security to the residents of the port city.

"We demand to handover Karachi to Pakistan Amry for three months," Kamal added.

Ruthless robbers have killed almost 20 people for showing resistance during the holy month of Ramadan.

According to reports, 6,780 street crime incidents were reported in the port city in one month.

Sources said that 20 vehicles were snatched at gunpoint and more than 130 others were stolen.

Almost 830 motorcycles were snatched and 4,200 others were stolen during Ramadan. 

As many as 1,600 mobile phones were snatched from the citizens in Karachi.
