A mini Police Line has been proposed to be established in the Katcha (Riverine) area in Ghotki district to eliminate criminals and their movement.
Speedy construction of police pickets to stop bandits in the Katcha areas of Sindh are in progress, while a decision to build a mini police line in the Katcha area of Ghotki is yet to be taken.
In a briefing to the journalists, DIG Sukkur Javed Sonharo Jaskani and SSP Ghotki Tanveer Hussain Tunio said on Thursday that the police are facing some problems during the operation in Katcha areas due to thick forest and trees. “The police are going in one direction and the robbers are going to the other side by boat with modern weapons.”
They said that 60 out of 140 police pickets have been formed in the limits of Raavant, Mirpur and Andal Sundarani police stations.
They said that there are the gangs of Rano Shar and Pervez Shar and added that there are hoards of criminals on the borders of Punjab as well.
They said that Sindh Police has established police pickets and appointed 100 personnel to stop the movement of bandits from Punjab.
They said that so far 65 hostages have been recovered, 37 bandits have been killed and 11 have been injured, while 85 facilitators and 100 criminals have been arrested.
They said that the along with facilitators of robbers, police have also arrested two women with drugs.
They said that the incidents of kidnapping through honey trap have reduced. “No anyone had been kidnapped in Ghotki district.”
They said that with the construction of police pickets, Katcah areas will be sealed and also crimes will be reduced.
The robbers will not be able to come on CPEC Road (motorway) with the establishment of the Police pickets.
They said that the police checkpoints are being constructed in a better way as the rocket launcher will not affect the police checkpoints.
They said that even after the water comes to the Katcha areas, the police will remain in the area and boats will be used for police transportation.
The police officials said that a police line is being formed at the Landhi check post where the DSP office will also be established, and after the mini-police line is formed, police response can be given immediately.
They said that weapons worth more than twenty million are being procured. “As binoculars for night vision are needed, the purchase of binoculars are in the process.”
