2,100 kidnappings expose police in Lahore
LAHORE: Over 2,100 people have been kidnapped across the province under the nose of the big guns of the Punjab Police department during the two month of the year 2011. The cases of kidnapping for ransom have increased by 95 per cent across the biggest province of the country.
The heinous crime, which left a wave of terror among the general public, also exposed the so-called police performance and the ever claimed efforts, comprehensive plans and effective strategy framed to guard the lives and property of the citizens.
The comparative analysis of official documents of the provincial police shows the top bosses have nothing to do with the masses except making heroic tall claims during press conferences or during high level meetings.
The official statistics shows the bandits, gangsters, rapists, murderers and other heinous criminals have been set free to roam across the Punjab without any fear or terror of the police personnel besides committing crimes, which usually closed the chapter of the lives of entire family. The vulnerability has crossed all the boundaries of injustice and insecurity, as 330 out of total 2103 persons were abducted from various parts of the provincial capital alone during the months of January and February.
According to the documents, the kidnappers remained on rampage in southern areas of the Punjab as 547 people were picked from Multan and Bahawalpur regions including 110 in Bahawalpur, 73 in Bahawalnagar, 90 from Rahim Yar Khan, 122 Multan, 36 Lodhran, 59 Khanewal and 57 from Vehari Districts.
