US citizens are reminded that police response times to reported crimes can vary,” learn the assertion, warning the residents travelling inside these sectors and particularly whereas visiting markets to train warning and stay alert.

However, the Islamabad police spokesperson strongly denied the US Embassy’s assertion and mentioned that the capital metropolis has seen a decline within the crime price in comparison with earlier years.
