According to the details, robbers looted cash from 18 people, mobile phones from 19 people, and 13 houses in different areas were robbed.

As per some statistics, in the three months of the ongoing year, Lahore police reported over 5,000 cases of snatching bikes, cars and other vehicles, so far.

The criminals have been looting an average of 200 people every day in the provincial capital. In the early 10 days of Ramadan, the police had reported over 1,000 incidents of robberies in different areas.
