Murree: Tourist family looted
MURREE: A tourist family of Lahore was looted by three robbers on Kuldana Road adjacent to the Mall Road in Murree. After depriving women of jewellery, mobile phones, Rs25,000 in cash and a license of their weapon, the robbers managed to flee towards the nearby jungle. Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Abbas Majeed Marwat told Dawn that police reached the spot soon after they were informed. He said he would take action against the ASI who was found absent from duty when the incident took place.
He added the police gave Rs4,000 and some fuel to the affected family as they were left penniless. It is worth mentioning here that Kuldana Road is an aloof place where movement of vehicles is limited especially at night and many similar incidents have earlier been reported. The locals have demanded that a permanent security arrangement should be made for the protection of the tourists ahead of the peak tourism season.
