ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 8th Dec, 2023) Deputy Commissioner (DC) Irfan Nawaz Memon has launched a major crackdown on professional beggars, with the Magistrate Secretariat spearheading the operation.
He said, "This decisive action sends a clear message that the city will not tolerate professional panhandling.
The operation, which is being overseen by Assistant Commissioners and Magistrates, is ongoing and promises to significantly reduce the number of beggars on the streets."
While the adult beggars were taken into custody, minor children were sent to the Edhi Center, ensuring their safety and well-being. This two-pronged approach demonstrates the city's commitment to both tackling the issue of professional begging and protecting vulnerable children, he concluded.
