Street crime in Karachi has increased manifold in recent months. A foreigner who was visiting Pakistan to attend a marriage ceremony was robbed at Sea View, ARY News reports.

According to details, an FIR has been registered against this incident in Karachi. As per news reports, two suspects used to follow foreigners to rob them after identifying themselves as law enforcers.

“While they were on their way home, they were intercepted by a white vehicle by men posing as cops, erecting a barricade,” said the complainant. “In the guise of checking, the robbers took the money from them and ran away,” added the complainant whose son-in-law and friend were visiting Pakistan from the United Kingdom (UK).


Police arrested a few members of the notorious gang. They also recovered looted foreign and local currencies, expensive items including laptops and mobile phones, fake number plates, police uniforms, wireless sets and weapons used in various crimes.
