Karachi youth with criminal past to get a second chance: DG Rangers

Youth who are or have engaged in criminal activities will get a second chance to start their lives anew, Director General (DG) Rangers Major General Bilal Akber said.

He was speaking at an event held in Karachi on Saturday where he mentioned three major initiatives that the Sindh Rangers is launching.

One of the initiatives is the Rangers Islahi Markaz where youth with a criminal past will be given opportunities to start their lives anew.

“Those who have committed major crimes will also be facilitated within the legal bounds,” Akbar added.

At least 30 youth have already joined the programme, he said.

The DG also mentioned a skill development centre being set up where youth from violence-ridden area will be trained.

“Thousands of men and women will receive skills training to help them find employment,” Akbar said.

The training has already commenced in a building in Federal B Area, the DG added.

“We did not want to wait for the construction to reach completion so we began the training at a temporary location,” he explained.

The federal government and the Sindh government are collaborating with Sindh Rangers to run these initiatives, the DG added.
