Several Karachi residents booked for aerial firing during New Year Celebrations
Several Karachi residents booked for aerial firing despite ban during the New Year celebration.
The city’s police had allowed residents to travel freely on New Year’s Eve but banned aerial firing and one-wheeling.
According to police, at least four people, a woman among them, were injured in incidents of celebratory firing.
Police said that they received as many as 22 complaints of aerial firing, after which first information reports (FIRs) were registered at Jackson, Darakshan and Clifton police stations.
Sindh police had launched a WhatsApp helpline for citizens to shoot and share videos of aerial firing on New Year’s Eve so law enforcers can take action against violators.
Additional Inspector General (AIG) Karachi Ghulam Nabi Memon asked the netizens for help in discouraging the practice by sending videos of elements indulging in celebratory gunfire on WhatsApp number 03435142770.
