RAWALPINDI: Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major Gen Asif Ghafoor on Monday said that Karachi at one point in 2014 was 6th in World Crime Index, but Alhamdulillah today it is at 70th with many first world cities behind.

In a tweet, he said that credit goes to the team of civil administration and security forces, especially Intelligence, police, Sindh Rangers and citizens of Karachi.

More stability will be witnessed in future Insha Allah, he hoped.

The list compares crime rate in various cities around the world like New Delhi, Houston, Johannesburg, Baltimore, Dhaka and Sao Paulo ahead of Karachi in terms of crime ranking.
