Ishtiaq Ahmed, a senior journalist who spent the day in broad daylight in Sector I-8 of the federal capital Islamabad, said that if it had been before the crisis, I would have been alerted by the criminals who covered my face and chased me. As usual, one person who stole Rs 8 lacs from me was wearing a mask and the other was wearing a helmet. The mask gave him the best opportunity to hide his identity.
In this regard, a senior police officer said that the increase in crime has nothing to do with masks, but it has made it easier for criminals to escape after a crime, he said, adding that guards come and go at banks and other places. You can ask people to take off their masks and identify themselves so that people’s faces can be captured on camera.
