KARACHI (Geo News) Due to reports of unabated street crimes in the metropolis, Police has announced a grand operation with the assistance of paramilitary against street criminals on Monday. Police

Police chief Mushtaq Maher said that there is a strong nexus of street criminals with drug mafia which is not easy to break.

"Two years back it was terrorism which was the biggest source of concern for media, civil society and NGOs, today it has been replaced by street crimes,” Maher said. “Though there has not been an evident change in the graph of street crime from last two years. But now our complete focus will be on it.”

He added that after thorough investigation with the arrested suspects, it was known that in the long run eventually there is a connection between street criminals and drug mafia.
