Islamabad, Nov. 17 (ANI): Members of banned Pakistani militant organizations are more involved in incidents of bank robberies and other crimes in Karachi than the Taliban, the nation's CID Functional Crime Unit head Raja Umar Khitab has said.

SSP Khitab said there was no proof of Taliban's presence in the Old City area or Lyari, however, reports have been received regarding the presence of banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ).

On the issue of rising extortion cases, the SSP explained that summoning information regarding extortionists' hideouts takes up to one week and till that time, the suspects have already shifted to another place, The Express Tribune reports.

According to the paper, members of banned organisations team up with Lyari gangwar suspects and distribute chits among businessmen and traders, which have their numbers on them, and are used by police and other agencies to locate them, Khitab detailed.

He said locating the extortionists takes up to 5-7 days and within that time, people have already paid extortion after coming under immense pressure and the same happens in kidnapping cases, paper said.

Khitab also lamented that the technology available to the law enforcement agencies is not up to the mark and a great deal of crimes can be curbed in the city if the technology if upgraded, the paper added. (ANI)
