AL-MALABAD: Capital Police Officer (CPO) Operations Shakir Hussain Dawar held a news conference at the Police Lines Headquarters to announce a major crackdown on car lifters.
Speaking to the media, he highlighted the Islamabad Capital Police Anti Vehicle Lifting Unit’s (AVLU) unwavering efforts to stop auto theft.
According to Dawar, the AVLU team’s hard work has resulted in the arrest of 125 people connected to 24 distinct infamous gangs.
Amazingly, 178 cars worth a total of Rs462.5 million were taken out of their hands.
Car theft activities in the federal capital have significantly decreased by 10% from the previous year, according to Dawar, who attributes the accomplishment to the careful precautions implemented by the Islamabad Capital Police.
This accomplishment was attributed to the skillful application of contemporary surveillance methods and the smooth cooperation of law enforcement organizations.
The sophisticated cameras and monitoring systems of Safe City Islamabad were important in breaking up highly organized auto theft rings, such as the notorious Bilal Sabit Gang.
As a result, there was a noticeable decline in auto theft and automobile snatching cases across the city.
Beyond Islamabad, the operation resulted in the recovery of stolen cars in a number of different areas, including Gilgit-Baltistan, Punjab, Azad Kashmir, KPK, and Balochistan.
Numerous auto theft organizations were brought to justice, and numerous car types were found and recovered.
Forty seized automobiles’ keys were returned to their respective owners by CPO Operations Dawar. The residents conveyed their appreciation, acknowledged the police units’ unwavering efforts, and applauded the Islamabad Capital Police for their successful countermeasures against auto theft.
