KARACHI: A group of criminals, comprising men and women, has become active in Karachi, looting people in the name of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Scheme.
An FIR No 75/14 has been registered against them in Nazimabad police station by a female victim, Musmat Zainab, on Thursday. The police have become alert to bust the gang.
The complainant reported that two women introduced them as the prime minister’s scheme representatives and told that Rs3m would be given under that scheme to poor. For that reason, they asked her to provide some bribe money and a bank guarantee.
“I told them that I did not have the required money, so, they suggested to hand over jewellery as a mortgage to bank, which would be given back to me later on,” she said.
She further told that when she gave her jewellery to them they fled away in car with their male accomplices. Police after registering the FIR have extended their inquiry to the entire city.
