Unable to trace auto-thieves, police are now after receivers
[Dawn] After years of frustrating operations trying to catch car thieves, the police are now focusing on the "receivers", middle men who deal in sale and purchase of stolen vehicles.
The police believe that the change in tactic will help recover a large number of stolen vehicles and decrease incidents of theft.
In a presser last Thursday, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Bani Amin Khan announced that the Anti-Car Lifting Cell (ACLC) had been able to trace receivers across Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa
... formerly NWFP, still Terrorism Central...
, and raids had been carried out to arrest the culprits from Batgram to Dera Ismail Khan
... the Pearl of Pashtunistan ...
The IGP said the Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) and the ACLC were now under the supervision of "capable and well-reputed officers".
