Dolphin Force has apprehended three female pick-pockets and recovered the plundered money.
The force reportedly arrested three women identified as Shamim, Sajida and Sakina from the General Hospital Lahore.
The arrested women are accused of stealing from several patients’ attendants.
An official of the force said the offenders belonged to Pakpattan, and have been handed over to Kot Lakhpat police for further investigation.
While pick-pockets in Pakistan are usually assumed to be men or children, the arrest should alert people to be cautious around women as well, said one of the officials.
