Rs. 5 Billion Worth of Cars are Stolen Every Year, Here’s How You Can Save Yours!

by Khawar Saeed

Stolen vehicles are a huge business in Pakistan. Every year, around 21,000 cars are stolen and they are worth up to a staggering PKR 5 billion. These vehicles are either sold to unsuspecting buyers or used to carry out a plethora of illegal activities like robberies, thefts, dacoits, snatching and so on.

Purchasing a car is one of the most significant cash investments for a majority of us and yet, car insurance isn’t as big as it should be in Pakistan. This means that your vehicle getting robbed is a significant setback financially.

Karachi, Rawalpindi and Islamabad are the most affected territories of vehicles burglary and grabbing.

10 years ago, Save the Nation Pakistan and Punjab Police joined hands to reduce vehicle crimes. The two parties have conducted joint activities in the Federal Capital region and dispatched Capital Safety Program for the safety and security of vehicles, offices, schools and industries for over a decade now.

Every year, around 21,000 cars are stolen and they are worth up to a staggering PKR 5 billion.

Save The Nation Pakistan’s vehicle security creative arrangements are an answer for the well being and security of local and business vehicles. They involve hands-on trainings, making car owners aware of various tips on security and videos that show how robbers break into cars. Lastly, free brochures and leaflets are available at all offices.

Through vehicle well being project, till today, more than 100,000 vehicles have been secured and over 5.5 million vehicle owners have been educated about the security of their auto-mobiles. On a daily basis, over 200 car owners are made more aware about vehicle safety and security. A Vehicle Verification Center is also active which allows new owners to verify whether or not their car is involved in any police cases, criminal activity or if it’s stolen.

The vehicle well being project has secured over 100,000 vehicles and educated over 5.5 million vehicle owners about the security of their auto-mobiles

Vehicle safety and security program offices are situated at Rescue 15 Liaqat Bagh Rawalpindi, Rescue 15 Zero Point Islamabad, Rescue 15 Jail Road Faisalabad & Rescue 15 Saraiki Chowk Bahawalpur and vehicles owners can get free materials, trainings and answers for any questions from these offices.

    Not only does your car get stolen, but also u cannot have the FIR registered as Police doesnt want their “KPIs” effected. After that you get calls from the thieves that u can have your car back by giving 2-3 lakh Rupees. and Law enforcement organizations are laziest and non-functional. they can’t even catch them.

    The best way is to recite Allah’s name when locking the car.

    Bismillahirrahmanirraheem – Yaa-Raqeebo.

    Even the jins cannot take away your car.

    When you can read “YA JALELO” YA JALELO” 10 times with starting of Durood & ending by Durood then you have to “Dum” to your personal asset & then if any one take this by snatching soch then wo andha bhi ho sakta hai ya jo bhi usy churany ayega usy nazar tak nahi ayegi gurranted azama chuka ho main kafi waqie howy mere sath par kuch nahi howa

    dear,
    if you purchased a new car,and your car got stolen.two factors; dealers also sell your files to third party i.e., name address etc. to third party.
    if car theft from home, means your home natives- neighbours involve in theft.
    police never launched FIR within 15 days,if your non govt employee/low approach- in KPK exceptions there.
    Tackers GSM are nearly fail,try Genuine Tracker Companies with territory locked.
    Use 15 Rawalpindi Paddle Lock with Genuine USA made LOCK!
    If you have TOYOTA, You home door must have strong Kunda with Genuine Locks in it.
    Don’t expect from Islamabad Police, All promotions are shoulder promtions.expect only FIR from them.
    One Final thing, if you got Call after 20-25 days from unknown claims we have your car, then please be noted, your FIR File copy sent to AIG/IG Office, Clerks there give all your data like all things you mentioned about Car in FIR, Unknown Caller share with you to make you sure they have your car,but infact they only grab the Money.
    Do not trust anyone like Security/Chowkidar, low paid guys also leakout your information.beware of Vegetable Sellers in your area, this is not a time to trust anyone.
    Comments are Welcome
