Fear grips Islamabad
Earlier, a video of robbers shooting a man while snatching in Islamabad’s E-11 sector has gone viral on social media. Viral video is the CCTV footage, and it shows that robbers shot the man who was left critically injured while snatching valuables from him.
Robbers ran to the other side of the road after shooting the man. The injured man continued to call for help. The viral video has instilled fear among social media users. It is, however, unclear if the man was robbed outside his home or he was a passer-by. It seems that the victim resisted the snatchers.
Social media users have demanded the authorities in the capital city catch the culprits immediately and take measures to ensure the safety of the citizens.
A social media user commented that E-11 is among the most unsafe sectors of Islamabad where the crime rate is higher. Others asked DC Islamabad Hamza Shafqaat about his recent social media post claiming the improved security situation in Islamabad.
Earlier in September, DC Islamabad had shared the international ranking claiming the capital as the second safest city in South Asia. Numbeo, which claims to be the world’s largest database of user-contributed data about cities and countries.
