D.G KHAN: Release of Choto gang in Dera Gazi Khan and Rajanpur has boosted crimes in the area where people are scared and appealed to the government for proper action against the criminal elements.
While the Security forces are busy in halting religious riots in the area, Chotu gang once again has become active and started looting and plundering innocent people who are already living under the poverty line.
According to sources, crimes of theft, murder and abduction for ransom have increased as notorious gangster Ghulam Rasool alias Chotu is patronizing criminal elements particularly in the suburb of Dera Ghazi Khan and Rajanpur.
It is the same gang which had kidnapped policemen last month from the area of Rojhan and transferred them to Karachi. Police had launched an operation which continued for more than 22 days against them but in vain.
Being encouraged by this gang, other criminal elements like Pat gang and Pehlwan gang also have started harassing people for their vested interests, locals said.
Keeping in view the security and survival of the area people, IG Punjab has ordered security forces to launch an operation against the aforesaid gangs for restoration of peace and tranquility in the region.
