Everyone in Karachi knows about Do Darya’s reputation including sex, drugs and violence. These activities are normal in this area. It is considered as one of the most attractive places amongst youth be it stretching your muscles in a car/bike race or setting up a fight with your rivals, want to have a joint, forget the world scene or have a quick sex on the back seat regardless of the gender discrimination, it’s the perfect hideout.
Do Darya becomes Fast & the Furious 10 on weekends
DHA Phase 8 aka known as Do Darya – who named it in the first place must have been stoned himself as there are no rivers there but a beach. The place is Isolated from the rest of the city, the place stays cold throughout the year and comes under Sahil Police Station jurisdiction.
Ever since the year 2000, when the roads weren’t paved, criminal activities have been reported often – several people murdered, drowned into the sea, rape cases, snatching and extortion are among few, beer trash and alcohol bottles are buried in the sand.
Do Darya has its value because it’s far from the crowded city and has many entrances and exits, pretty easy to digest any criminal activities. The crime rate is usually high at night but it has never been considered safe in the board day light either.
On every Sunday, illegal racing takes place without any permission obtained from authorities, without any safety measures, no ambulances, no fire brigade and no police. Ever since the year 2000 – VIP fellas bring their guards along as mostly these kids are politically affiliated and Do Darya becomes their own playground.
Police is visible only till the sea view restaurant after which the stretch of 18 kilometers circling till Creek Vista Towers hardly has any police activity. However, you’ll witness teenagers having joints (Weed), alcohol, you might even catch a dancing car there at dawn or late at night.
It’s like this place does not come under the jurisdiction of the law. The problem is our law agencies aren’t interested in controlling the environment there, most of the time police messes with 70cc and 125cc Bikers – apart from that they have no right to stop Land Cruiser, Benz or Audi’s. They are free to do whatever they want only the weak have to suffer just to show that policing is being done.
