The city of Khuzdar has become a hub of criminal activities, with reports indicating that street criminals, snatchers, and thieves are rampant in the area. The situation has left the residents of Khuzdar living in constant fear of losing their possessions and even their lives, as the police and district administration seem to be ineffective in addressing the issue.

Numerous cases have been reported of snatchers targeting women and robbing them of their purses and wallets. Thieves have also been reported to be robbing civilians at gunpoint. The locals have expressed their helplessness in the face of this situation, stating that they cannot resist the thievery due to the fear of losing their lives in the struggle.

Despite frequent patrolling by law enforcement agencies, thieves and snatchers continue to operate with impunity. The locals allege that the forces themselves have become a party to the crime, as they extort money from local traders and businessmen. In one incident, a notable worker of the Balochistan National Party was critically injured while trying to resist a snatching.

The rising cases of purse snatchings from women have sparked outrage among the locals. They have appealed to the district administration to take concrete steps to ensure the safety of the civilians and bring the culprits to justice. If that is not possible, they demand that the civilians be allowed to arm themselves for their own protection.
