PTA’s mobile registeration system failed; street crimes are still on peak!

241 0

KARACHI: A technology-driven initiative launched by the federal authorities a year ago to curb the risks associated with the use of illegal mobile phone sets in the country has failed to make any impact on curbing street crimes — one of the key sources behind trade of second-hand sets — as the number of snatching/theft incidents in 2019 touched three-year high.

Data compiled by the Karachi police and the Citizens-Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) raised questions on effectiveness of the much-publicised Device Identification, Registration & Blocking System (DIRBS), which was launched in January 2019 as the authorities had claimed that the new technology would curb the risks associated with the use of illegal mobile handsets in the country that would ultimately lead to curb street crimes.
