    Default Robberies, snatching, street cons to rob, etc

    im creating this thread to create awareness regarding the rather alarming trend of street crimes in lahore wherein it is becoming a norm to hear stories here and then when people were robbed /snatched of their cars, belongings etc .

    the idea is to spread info regarding the tactics of these petty criminals who can harass you potentially ,turns out, more and more robberies are NOT armed but a con by a team of possibly trained crooks .

    share your experiences

    I was getting dropped to home by a dear friend on his bike after playing Snooker near about 11:30PM this winters. The club is located in Q Block Model Town and we choose the inner route instead of the main road, unfortunately. Near to an exit to the main Link Road Model Town, we were stopped by a Cultus loaded with three people with faces covered along with cheap loaded guns and got robbed. They took our wallets, phones and even my friend's band new CG125 and went away. Went to the police station the very same night within 25 mins of getting robbed and herd another news of a mobile phone snatching on the bike stolen from us, and overall 8 robberies were executed by them on our stolen bike within the radius of 30 KMs. And yes, Bike is still missing.

    this happened to the wife of my colleague two days back in lahore , as recounted by him

    Location :-

    PECO road brigde near PEL factory , ( the railway crossing )

    Time was 9 PM

    she was driving on her way back to DHA when at the crossing, two guys ( on foot ) approached from back and started " slapping" the read door. she panicked a loondked right , then the other a*** hole started slapping on the right rear door, they were shouting you hit us , you hit us, in the chaos and panic, she slightly lowered the left window ( about a few inches ) but thankfully kept driving and never stopped . after a few miles when she reached DHA, she realized her cell fone and wallet ( stashed in the space beneath the stereo ) were gone

    What happened ;-

    this was a case of " distract and steal " . the guys were cunning, they observed the target at the crossing ( the car is slow then ) and then approached from the rear. the slapping on doors distracted the lady and she panicked whether she's hit someone. the mistake of the lady was to lower the left window which enabled the robber to do a sleight of hand on the fone and wallet,. :/

    thankfully, nothing serious happened, just a lost fone and some credit cards which were quickly blocked

    the fone IMEI was given to PTA to be blocked

    this has happened to me for a second time now.


    Location :-

    ferozpur road, walton bridge , lahore

    Time :-

    Daylight hours , about 2 months back

    event :-

    i was coming back from office via ferozpur road . there is an overhead crossing to walton road via a bridge. while on top of the bridge just at ap theex where there is a sharp turn, a "malang baba" with the green dress and all and doing the raised finger thing suddenly came in front of my car , in total disregard of the traffic .

    im a naturally slow driver so i stopped. he came forward , did the "alla hu" thing again and placed his hands on my engine hood. i knew by now it was a con so i slowly accelerated,, he said ruk ja ruk ja but i kept going... by now he had realized id trample him so he slowly backed off

    the con:-

    probable four to six man team hiding nearby . had i engaged the baba into giving him something, they would have come and pounced on me. i know this because exactly the same happened to a relative.

    i reckon the whole area east of ferozpur road , ( model town, peco road, johar town, etc ) is a favorite of these streek crooks

    This is total circumstantial theory, it could be that you didnt let a poor old man cross the road..

    highly likely, when people wanna cross , they ask for way, not jump in middle of road and put hands on your car :/

    when did the local police get so efficient that they could track 8 robberies to one motorcycle?

    As per latest Rule/law Nadra prints you new ID card without asking for as FIR which they did in the past. Now if you misplace your ID card you can walk into nadra office and get the replacement
