As Karachi continues to witness a rise in street crime, there’s been an unprecedented spike in vigilante justice. In a recent incident, a driver ran over robbers in the middle of a mugging.

CCTV footage of the incident is making rounds online. One man had enough of the rampant street crime and took matters into his own hands. After observing that muggers were holding a man at gunpoint in an attempt to rob him, a car rammed into the criminals.

He ran over them at full speed. It is unclear the degree of injuries sustained by the criminals.

Others voiced their opinions on resorting to violence.


The incident reflects the public’s extreme anger over the lack of security and justice. While authorities are not paying attention to the problem, the public’s frustration is building. Taking the law into your own hands is never wise.

Robbery is one of the most reported street crimes in Karachi since last year. Since the beginning of 2021, numerous Karachiites were victims of armed robberies and snatching at gunpoint. No district of the city remains unscathed.
