Through your esteemed newspaper, I want to draw the attention of concerned authorities towards street robberies all over Pakistan. The residents of our country are suffering from this problem.

Street robbery is one form of a larger set of problems related to the street crime. Robbers search for victims who appear to have money and other valuables. Street criminals are responsible for injuries, deaths, sexual assaults and the loss of personal property through force.

They also look for victims who are unaware of their immediate surroundings, for example, busy on calls or are listening to MP3 players, might appear less alert and are more vulnerable to street robbers than other people. Because of the negligence of members of society, activities of these criminals are destroying society.

I request concerned authorities to look into this matter and take immediate actions.
