Crime Ratio in FATA
- Crime ratio in Fata remains low
PESHAWAR, Feb 27: Contrary to general expectations, crime ratio in the
Federally Administered Tribal Areas remains much better than the urban areas
of the province since the start of the new millennium.
According to statistics, 10 kidnapping incidents took place in the tribal
areas in the last three months as compared with the NWFP where 126 persons
were kidnapped in the four months from Oct 2001 to Jan 2002.
During the last three months, North Waziristan Agency remains the most
peaceful area where only one incident of road robbery was reported. Whereas,
in the same period three murder cases were registered in Kurram and Bajaur
agencies. In Khyber Agency one kidnapping and four murders were reported; in
Mehmand Agency seven murders took place; in Orakzai Agency three
kidnappings, six murders and one case of car-lifting were reported and in
South waziristan Agency six kidnappings, three murders and six car-lifting
cases were registered.
Contrary to Fata crime figures, in the Frontier province 39 cases of
kidnapping were registered in Oct 2001; 35 in Nov 2001; 20 in Dec 2001 and
32 in Jan 2002.
The crime ratio in the NWFP as a whole remains static since the start of the
new millennium up to Jan 2002. However, there is a definite increase in
crimes of certain categories like murder, assault on others, theft,
car-lifting and motorcycle theft.
In the year 2000, the NWFP police registered 90,524 cases, whereas in 2001,
the number reduced to 85,319. In 2000, 2,109 cases of murders were
registered, while the next year the figure went up to 2,127. In the year
2000, 2,727 cases of attempted murder were reported, while 2,655 cases of
same nature were registered in 2001.
