KARACHI: The Sindh police have prepared comprehensive recommendations, which would be submitted to the provincial government for amending the Control of Narcotics Substance (Sindh Amendment) Act, 2021 to make it more stringent and effective.

This was stated by Sindh Inspector General of Police Ghulam Nabi Memon on Thursday. He observed that most crimes in the city were committed by drug addicts.

He admitted that street crimes, murder(s) during robberies and narcotics trade were extremely serious and sensitive issues, which were being addressed by the police ‘seriously.’

The provincial police chief stated this while addressing Overseas Investors Chamber of Commerce and Industries (OICCI) at the latter’s office in Clifton.

IG Memon said that the Sindh police by utilising modern technology were taking concerted efforts against street crimes, killings during robberies and sale and narcotics trade.

He said Sindh government was also helping in the upgradation of CTD, RRF (rapid response force) and investigation wing of the police.

He said he had appointed the AIG Operations as the focal person for coordination and addressing problems of the overseas investors’ chamber.
