Citizens frequenting the markets for the upcoming Eid festival are being fleeced by this mafia, which at its very own discretion have started operating parking zones around the shopping centers and are charging close to 20 rupees per motorcycle and 50 rupees per car, most of the time without any receipt.

This year, the municipal corporation has decided to put up parking areas off from shopping centers and public plazas, but sources have claimed that in Saddar, Tariq Road, Hyderi, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Clifton and other fields, the police has allotted illegal parking areas to such mafia and the extortionists are earning millions in the holy month of Ramadan.

On the other hand, the city government has caught more than 15 souls on the directions of commissioner Karachi.
