Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah has commanded a complete crackdown of buying and selling second-hand smartphones throughout Karachi. CM has taken this decision, owing to the increase in mobile phone snatching and illegal selling in the black market.
During a security review meeting, the informants told Murad Ali Shah that the density of mobile phones being snatched in Karachi is greater either late in the night or early mornings. The ratio of peak times is dependent on the closed markets and empty streets.
