Rawalpindi - The gangs of dacoits and car lifters are seemingly ruling the city as they have been depriving the citizens of cash, mobile phones and vehicles round the clock with no police action against them.

Interestingly, police instead of taking action against the dacoits and car lifters have been humiliating the victims by not lodging cases against the carjackers.

A gang of dacoits shot and injured a father and his son over resistance during a dacoity bid at a mobile shop on Chakri Road, informed sources yesterday.

Sourced said that a gang of 6 dacoits carrying weapons in their hands entered a mobile shop on Chakri Road and made the shopkeepers hostage at gunpoint.

Later, the intruders collected cash and mobile phones worth thousands of rupees.

They shot and injured the owner and his son over resistance. After committing the crime, the robbers managed to escape, sources added.

Police rushed to the crime scene and shifted the injured to DHQ for treatment. The traders staged a protest demonstration against the dacoity incident and shut down their businesses and demanded RPO and CPO to arrest the intruders.

In Afshan Colony, two dacoits stormed into a mobile shop and looted Rs 60,000 cash, mobile cards worth Rs 100,000 and 2 mobile phones at gunpoint. The victim approached police for legal action against the robbers, sources said.

On the other hand, unknown vehicle lifters pilfered two motorcycles from Saddar and Raja Bazaar but police despite complaints of victim owners did not register cases.
