Tannery Zone becomes Pakistan’s first crime-free industrial area


KARACHI: Tannery Zone of Korangi Industrial Area has become Pakistan’s first ever crime-free industrial zone by self-help basis. This was claimed by the Chairman Pakistan Tanners Association (PTA) SZ, Fawad Jawed while talking to the association’s members and office bearers in a meeting held on Thursday. Forward said that that about a year back there were many incidences of street crimes and dacoities in the Tannery Zone and the industrialists were extremely disturbed due to the deteriorating law and order situation. He said that the PTA South Zone then finally resorted to go for CPLC’s assisted system of surveillance – Neighbourhood Care under which the association has started surveillance of the area with the initial budget of Rs4 million and purchased vehicles, motorbikes and hired private guards. He said that the area police and Rangers have fully supported the PTA in its quest and provided patrolling and mobiles vans to strengthen the CPLC-NC surveillance. The then DIG East had provided 29 police personnel for the patrolling and established pickets at some major arteries in the area while DG Rangers specially instructed the Rangers in the area to fully assist PTA.   Fawad has highly appreciated the role of the Rangers in fostering peace in the area and the entire city. He lauded the efforts of the Maj. Gen. Rizwan Akhtar in ensuring that the situation in the city did not get out of control. He hoped that Gen Rizwan would continue with his efforts in maintaining law and order. He acknowledged endeavors of the Rangers to have contributed to put the wheel of the Industry on the track once again so that the national economy continues to improve once it has taken U-turn for the betterment under the vibrant incumbent PML-N leadership.
