Three young men held for cyber crime


KARACHI: The Cyber Crime Unit (CCU) of the Crime Investigation Department has arrested three young men for stealing pay orders through a courier service. Noman Azeem, Muhammad Amir Qayyum and Salaam Adil Sheikh were caught red handed by CCU after investigation revealed that the men were involved in swindling. CCU Chief DSP Usman Asghar Qureshi said that the three men made away with almost Rs 7 million before they were caught.

Qureshi said that the management of a private bank registered an FIR No 26/09 and requested for a thorough investigation. The DSP said that Azeem, working at a courier service, would steal the bank-stamped envelopes from the outgoing mail and with his accomplices, Qayyum and Sheikh, who work as finance consultants, had been committing the crimes for the past six months. Qureshi said that pay orders worth Rs 6.7 million were recovered from the culprits while revealing that Azeem was previously arrested by the local police and has a criminal record. The three men have been given into police remand for five days by the city court judicial magistrate. “We are investigating the case and are now checking for the involvement of other suspects. During the initial investigation, they have given us a lot of information. We are trying to locate all accomplices involved in this racket,” Qureshi added.

Karachi fears Mumbai-like attack


Pakistan’s biggest city and commercial centre, Karachi, fears a terrorist attack like the Mumbai attacks, and the authorities have initiated moves to be prepared to minimise any potential damage, official sources disclosed here Monday.

Senior government and corporate sector officials con cede that the law enforcers are conducting an exercise to take stock of building plans of structures built mainly in Zone South of the police organisational set-up, which can emerge as potential targets for terrorist activities not too different than the Mumbai attacks.

“One should learn from mistakes before it’s too late and we did so from the Mumbai attacks,” admits Waseem Ahmed, the Capital City Police Officer. “We observed that there is a strong need for such an exercise that can equip our police with all the necessary information regarding major and important structures in the city that we can use (in a timely fashion).”

Drug mafia opens for business in SITE under police supervision

By M. Zeeshan Azmat


A committee comprising different political activists as well as representatives of prominent families and communities has urged the police hierarchy and other law enforcement agencies to take strict and immediate action against the drug mafia involved in selling illegal drugs in different localities of Sindh Industrial Trading Estate (SITE), particularly in Bawany Chawli, Union Council 5 for past many years.

According to a report prepared by the committee, there are over 50 places in UC-5 alone where drug peddlers have been operating their business without any fear. Hashish is the top selling item in the locality, while Heroin is second most traded narcotics so far. Some drug dealers also carried weapons to dominate residents of the area, it further said. Now, these drug traders are also moving into other parts of SITE Town, sources said.

The report has been given to the Home department, police headquarter, and area police stations but officials have not taken any action, The News has learnt.

This situation has gone from bad to worse since the past two years; meanwhile, people have witnessed regular incidents of street crime. Approximately 20 per cent of the population of the UC is addicted to drugs, while the police does not interfere in the matter because of political pressures, the sources said.

Medina Masjid, Muhalla Hyder Chali, Sarafa Bazaar near Shahi Masjid, Shahi Muhalla, Haqani Masjid and Muhalla, Rababni Masjid Muhalla, Mecca Masjid, Sher Bahadur Dera, Jalali Masjid and Pahari Muhalla, Bagh Malik and Rabbani Muhalla are some of the most active spots of drug peddling, The News has learnt.

Local activists from Awami National Party, Jamat-e-Islami, Jamat-e-Ullemae Islam, Muttahida Quami Movement, Pakistan People’s Party and Pukhtukhua Milli Awami Party, were part of a 25-people based committee. Meanwhile, all Nazims and Naib Nazims of SITE Town, other representatives of town administration, SHO’s of three police stations of town have been nominated as members of the committee.

The report, which was based on committee’s investigations that lasted for two months, revealed that the drug racket also enjoyed the support of police personnel from the town’s jurisdiction. According to the report, different levels of groups involved in the sale of drugs give the money extracted from extortion to the local police, and payments are made according to the category of their business.

Almost a month ago, one of the main drug dealers of the town, Wahab, was arrested along with five other traders but later, he was released in lieu of Rs0.25 million without an FIR being lodged. Like, Wahab, Juma Khan and his brother are other leading drug dealers. They operate in the graveyard located in between Pathan and Frontier Colony.

The report also indicates that drug operators use intra-city buses to smuggle contraband into the city. Afterwards, local public transport (comprising coaches) is used to distribute the drugs to other areas.

In some cases, entire families are involved in the sale of narcotics in local markets, the report stated. On the other hand, the residents of UC5 told The News that role of the local police is dubious and few, if not all, of the law enforcers support the drug mafia. Some retired and suspended policemen are also involved in drug trading and few on service policemen are also participating in it, they alleged.

“It has been noticed that whenever a person goes to the police to lodge complaints or FIRs against drug sale in his or her area, the police never respond properly,” area people claimed. “Furthermore, complainants receive severe threats from drug dealers within hours of their visit to police station,” they said.

Former, TPO Javed Riaz Akbar and who was followed by, Sohail Zafar Chatha, had taken serious actions against the sale of narcotics in the area, but, once they were transferred one after other from the town, the situation became favourable for these dealers. Nowadays, DIG West, Abdul Majeed Dasti has taken some measures but his efforts are going in vain due to connivance of local police with drug dealers.

Provincial Minister for Excise and Taxtation Department, Mukesh Kumar Chawala, was contacted to comment on the matter, but he was not available to speak to The News.

Karachi Stocks hits four-year low as foreign funds exit emerging markets

The continued distress-sale of shares by the foreign portfolio investors and irresolution of debt issue at Karachi bourse between brokers and banks pushed market down to new low of four-year on Wednesday.

With another notable plunge of 121.80 points or 2.32 per cent in this session, the KSE 100-share Index depreciated to 5,136.48 points. The day closing level is the lowest one after September 28, 2004 closing of 5,128.13 points.

The parallel running junior 30-Index slashed 152.04 points or 3.08 per cent and concluded at 4,782.97 points.

Hasnain Asghar Ali at Aziz Fidahusein observed that although private and government sector funds did stay prominent buyers in various main board stocks many even succeeding in trading above lower locks, foreign downpour strengthened further as it joined hand with selling by local participants thus never allowing the buyers to resist the high tides, and the KSE benchmark was yet again pushed to deep-red. Analysts said that foreigners were offloading their holding for one reason or the other. They withdrew another over $8 million in this session only.

“Perhaps, overseas investors know what are the true vales of each stocks and they would indulge into buying from those pre-supposed levels or they are reshuffling their portfolios in accordance with the new stocks market orders,” commented a leading analyst.

He maintained that in the newly emerging era - post economic recession period or recovery phase - some tier two stocks would occupy the place of leading stocks in top of the actives list and vice-versa. This phenomenon is, at present, in the making and become visible when every thing would have been settled, he added.

The unresolved issue debt, which brokers owe to banks, is not allowing bulls to show their muscles. Otherwise, bulls are ready to overcome the crisis and waiting for the green signal, other analysts said. With the massive correction in international oil prices and decline in demand of other commodities as well at world level, the oil and food inflations have started easing down in the country. Amid the trade and current account deficits have also started reducing in the last couple of months. These are the good signals for the local economy and would encourage equity investors to stage come back once the local issue of debt at bourses are resolved, they added.

Ahsan Mehanti at Shahzad Chamdia Securities said besides massive foreign selling and debt issue, the rupee depreciation and turmoil in the international equity markets also discouraged investors to remain on the sidelines.

This session, therefore, witnessed sharp decline in many of the stocks prices and recorded low turnover too.

The day turnover dropped down to 90.769 million shares as compared to 143 million shares changed hands yesterday - showing a decline of over 34 per cent on day-to-day basis. Activities in future market remained shunned.

Another outflow of Rs38 billion from the overall market capitalisation shrank it to Rs1,639 billion.

Out of total 270 actives, 198 stocks declined, 60 advanced, while the value of 12 stocks remained unchanged.

Oil and Gas Development Company remained the volume leader with 9.340 million shares closed at Rs44.29 with a loss of Rs2.17, followed by National Bank with 6.612 million shares closed at Rs51.94 with a loss of Rs2.73, Pakistan Telecommunication Company with 6.119 million shares closed at Rs12.96 with a loss of 58 paisa, Zeal Pak with 4.192 million shares closed at 47 paisa with a loss of one paisa and Hub Power with 4.036 million shares closed at Rs14.77 with a loss of 41 paisa.

194 Girls Raped in Karachi Last Year 2008

Karachi being the biggest city of Pakistan also desere to be the city of opportunities. It was Karachi who was commercialized far before any other city of Pakistan. This all comes with its special geographical location.

But this all not makes a this free from the odd ends, although obcure to many eyes but yet they should be recognized by every citizen of this mega city. One of such thing is the problems.

Seminar on Adoption of Anti Bribery Principles in the Private Sector.


A seminar was held at Hotel Marriott on 15th January, 2009 on ‘Adoption of Anti Bribery Principles in the Private Sector’. This seminar was organized by Transparency International Pakistan and BASF Pakistan(Pvt) Ltd. The Chief Guest of the seminar was Engr. Elahi Bakhsh Soomro, Ex speaker of the National Assembly.

Mr Syed Adil Gilani welcomed the guests at the start of the seminar. He explained the aims and objectives of Transparency International – Pakistan and gave an overview of its activities. He discussed the Bribe Payers Index and the Corruption Perception Index of Transparency International. He pointed out the corruption in the Private Sector in the International Arena and the role played by the auditing firms.

He was followed by Mr Qazi Sajid Ali, MD BASF Pakistan (Pvt) Ltd. He talked about the MOU signed by their company with TI-Pakistan. He informed after the company had decided to follow anti bribery principles in their practices, they had to undergo great difficulties in their business. However they persevered and now they find it was much easier to follow these principles. BASF requires all its employees to follow high levels of integrity both during their business and personal dealings.

The next speaker was Mr H.N. Akhtar, ex Secretary GOP. He shared his experiences with the participants. He was of the opinion that the term anti corruption should be added to the topic. He advised that auditors should not issue false certificates. He suggested that these principles should also apply to the Public sector. He also informed about the corruption in the donor agencies.

Mr Zubair Tufail, Vice President FPCCI. He said that discretionary powers of government officials. He said that corruption is affecting all aspects of life. It is evident in different forms like favoritism, misuse of power, jobs not provided on merit. He recommended the curtailment of discretionary powers of the government officials, simplification of laws and speedy decision making.
Engr M.A. Jabbar spoke on the speech of the previous president when he came to power. He said that the exact speech could be used today with only an addition of nine years as nothing seemed to have changed in their rule. He said that each successive government gives lip service to eradicating corruption but after they leave there has been no change. He recommend that an independent judicial system, independent and responsible media, transparent oversight bodies, independent anti corruption agencies, well trained law enforcement, an effective civil society were necessary for the curbing of corruption.

Mr Abbas Akberali, CEO Amreli Steel spoke at length about various modes and methods of corruption in vogue. His recommendation included indexation of wages and salary, rationalization of custom duties, curtailment of discretionary powers and accountability.

In the end Engr Elahi Bakhsh Soomro, Ex speaker National Assembly summed up the discussions. He appreciated the relevance of the topic and commended both Transparency International Pakistan and BASF Pakistan (Pvt) Ltd for taking the initiative to discuss such an important issue. While he considered it essential for the top leadership to be clean in order to serve as role models for the public at large, he however was of the view that even under the present circumstances a lot can be done by the organizers.

A sub committee was formed under the leadership of Qazi Sajid Ali of BASF with members MA Jabbar, Mr Abbas Akberali and Mr Zubair Tufail to prepare strategies and recommendations enhancing the adoption of anti bribery principles in the private sector.

Nazim Karachi Syed Mustafa Kamal has decided to hold meetings with leaders of political parties for removal of wall chalking and posters by political parties and appeal them to ask their workers to remove chalking and posters from walls, bridges and under-passes so that the city looked clean to visitors.
He stated this while addressing a meeting on the night of Saturday-Sunday. In the meeting steps were considered for cleaning of chalking and posters and to check them in future.
Nazim said that on the occasion that if we are civilized nation then we have to give a proof of this as well while our religion also teaches us the lesson of cleanliness.
He pointed out that all the walls of Karachi are full with commercial ads of hakims, fake healers and similar other elements which has given a bad look to the city.
Mustafa Kamal said that under section 144 all First Class Magistrates of City Government have been authorized to arrest all those people and send them to jail while decision has been taken to seal the business of such organizations.
He directed all the Magistrates to take stringent measures in this respect and take action without discrimination.
He said all citizens will have to cooperate with the city government in this regard and only then Karachi would join the world’s beautiful cities. He pointed out that city government is showing no lacking in this regard and it has planted 1.80 lac trees throughout the city for environmental improvement and increasing the population.
He said that wide and beautiful roads, flyovers, underpasses and beautiful bus stops have been constructed and if culture of wall chalking is done away with, it will add to the city’s beauty and visitors coming from outside Karachi will see Karachi very beautiful.
He said by meeting leaders of political parties he will make them personal appeal to direct their workers in the city’s greater interest to removal chalking and posters voluntarily and avoid the same in future.
