As Karachi residents grapple with lawlessness in the wake of deadly street crime which has claimed many lives, Sindh home minister Ziaul Hasan Lanjar downplayed the situation, stating that the law and order situation in the city is being "exaggerated."

At a press conference on Sunday, the Interior Minister acknowledged the prevalence of street crime in the city. However, Lanjar added that he believes “there is too much hype surrounding the issue.”

He presented a bizarre explanation for the high crime rates in Karachi, the country's business hub, saying, "It is a matter of daily life. Crimes happen when the business runs."

Karachi has seen a staggering 16,000 street crimes in just the first three months of this year, according to statistics reported at the Sindh cabinet's inaugural meeting on March 13. 

This contradicts Sindh Home Minister Ziaul Hasan Lanjar's recent claims that the city's crime problems are exaggerated.

Since January, 49 Karachi citizens have lost their lives while resisting robberies.

Lanjar offered condolences to the families of robbery victims who lost their lives. He added that the government is preparing effective measures to curb street crime. 

He stated that action will be taken against any Station House Officer (SHO) in whose jurisdiction a crime occurs.
