Street Crime - Me A Victim!

Who hasn’t heard of mobile snatching in Pakistan? It’s a very common issue and thus, nobody pays much attention to it now. I was thankful to Allah that I haven’t been a victim to this barbarian act until yesterday, but, what happened yesterday morning was horrifying and outrageous.

It was around 9 in the morn, I along with some of my girls parked our car and started heading towards our university gate, when God knows from where and why these two scary men jumped in front of us with bronze metal (read: gun) in their hands. I was numb at that moment, didn’t know how to react or what to do. The bastard twisted my wrist and asked me for my phone and cash – Me being stupid enough, lied that I don’t carry one. He hit that metallic thing hard on my hand – How could they be so opprobrious. I gave him all I had, cellular phone and cash. It all took hardly 3 minutes time and they rode off. The worst part was, our security officers were in the vicinity and they could see very clearly what was happening but they chose to overlook it, amazing, isn’t it?

We rushed to the administration, my hand bleeding then. But, strange was their reply. They’re not responsible since it happened outside the premises, wow! Now, who to blame? The security guards who stood there and laughed at us, the admin or our poor land of pure.

Thats a terrible thing. AND THAT shouldn't happen to anyone ever.
Its so damn common :( But its sad.
ThankGod Your safe except for the hand injury.

Thats pathetic The admn should have done something abt it! But they're always like that. When my wallet got stolen in the college cafe and I complained they totally said they wont even try looking for it! HA!

It sucks. Measures should be taken to get stuff like this under control.

Once again thank god for the fact your safe. OMG. I was like shocked when I read this!

Take care!

That is soooooo sad.
I hope that you are okay and sustained no serious injuries apart from the bleeding hand.

It's disgusting people can do that. && To stand there and laugh? That's cowardice to the extreme. When you're being paid to do 'security' and protect the members of that institution, it wouldn't hurt to take a few steps and carry out your job beyond your contract. That's just common sense.

But I guess, though you've lost your phone and had money taken, at least you're okay. :).

Stagnant pure water if left unattended in one place gains impurities, in the same way, 'Pak'istan has done so too. But that's a problem every where you go. There are even muggings here.

Easiest of all just point at a random stranger going on the road and shout 'He's the thief' and stand there looking how a dozen of people tear him to pieces without even knowing who he really Was!

That's Irony!

Princess said...

I am sorry to hear that !
Funny know nobody takes such things seriously and they just put lame excuses and reasons when questioned ...
Irony indeed !
