Police at passport office

RIGHT in front of the High Court premises on Sharea Iraq, passport touts and thieves of car accessories thrive. A thief stole the precious side-mirror of my brand new Toyota on Jan 2. I reported to the area SHO, who took no action.

The next day a person approached me to sell the genuine side-mirror for Rs2,500 as original is available for Rs8,600. When I asked him where he got this accessory from, he ran away. Several people have complained against this well-planned stealing industry, but police authorities do not act upon citizens’ complaints.

The police also take money from touts encroaching upon the footpaths and illegal parking of auto-rickshaws. This prevents advocates like me from going to the High Court from our office situated near the Saddar Passport Office. Police officials enter the High Court premises from the Sharea Iraq entrance but take no remedial action.
