Rehman Dakait and Arshad Pappu : Lyari Gang War

By Sameer Shaharyar • May 7th, 2008 • Category: Politics • One Response

Lyari is the one of the most populous and oldest locality of the megapolis Karachi, but for the last some years it has become a no go area for the common people due to the on going gang wars in the area, in which hundreds of people die in the cross firing or gun shooting.

Two leading gangs of Lyari are of Rehman Dakait and Arshad Pappu. Previously both worked together, but then got separated due to conflicts and then a bloody feud started between the two. Both gangs are busy in fighting with each other take control of criminal dens in the Lyari and the suburbs.

Recently the skirmishes between the both groups have increased many folds. Rehman Dakait has been involved in the abduction of industrialists from the S.I.T.E area Karachi and now police have launched a massive operation against this gang war.

About 150 policemen along with armored carriers and mobiles launched the drive against criminal gangs in the locality and up till now six people have died. Police should eradicate these anti-social elements once and for all and they should also make sure that no civilian causalities happen during these operations.

One wonders as why police wakeup so late, when petty criminals become so powerful that they take hostage thousands of people?

  1. Monitoring of law and order and enforcement of law are different subject .one is a situation created secondary to the act of crime whereas other is an action secondary to the act of crime .however the terms are used synonymously and interchangeably .crime is an act motively done but may be voluntary or involuntary .its a an action aimed at sabotaging or safe guarding. Similarly enforcement of law is the force to compel law and regulation so to impose writ, strength and command of the state. Governance has multiple pillars of which enforcement has its typical domain. Loose command is a precursor of crime and disobedience .there are multiple factors that ensure good command, and many factors that weakens .without going in to he discussion of subject pillars and factors, one of the important constituent of such inabilities to crack down the culprit is the influence of politics and similar blacksheeps that hinder such activated call of arrest. In any case the end result is establish, organized fleet of criminals and crime. Subject dacoits and miscreant are not new in books of crime surrounding the scenes of liyari and Karachi .to cut short, it’s the politics that holds the matter motively and its same politics that re engages the theme for solution.
