Karachi Police, Pakistan admitted that the 10-year old girl was shot dead during a police encounter with robbers in Defence on August 13, 2018 was killed by police fire. During a shootout between cops and suspected robbers in the Defence neighborhood a 10-year-old Amal Umer was killed. Amal Umer lost her life after she was hit by a stray bullet during a police encounter in Karachi’s Akhtar Colony area. Police have arrested one of the suspect, media reports confirm that a Supreme Court appointed committee will be formed to investigate the death of Amal during a police encounter in Karachi.  Amal died because of the shots fired by the police. Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has mentioned: “We cannot rely on the police”. That is why the committee will comprise members of other agencies, such as the Intelligence Bureau.  This committee will determine those responsible for a 10-year-old girl’s death in Karachi. It will also establish amendments necessary for police training, regulations and treatment of injured persons in hospitals. The advocate general of Sindh, Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan, Lateef Khosa, and Advocate Umaima are part of the committee.


The case of Police negligence in Karachi Pakistan raises a very key issue regarding training of Police and protection of innocents. August 13, 2018 was supposed to have been the dawn of a “Naya Pakistan”. And it began on a high: celebrations at school and preparations for Independence Day were in full swing. However, the way the day turned out for a 10-year old’s family is not the way they expected. Getting killed by the people who are entrusted with the responsibility to keep communities safe is a great tragedy. According to statistical data on various crimes reported in Karachi, maintained by Citizens-Police Liaison Committee, over one thousand mobile phones were snatched in any given month with the highest number in January 2016 when nearly 1,600 mobile phones were snatched.

A street crime like robbery caused a death of an innocent and this calls in for a systemic police reform in Pakistan. The case of Amal needs to be investigated and appropriate committee recommendations must include mentions of evolved and advanced technologies that help deter crimes in Pakistan.


The case of Amal Umer is not the first but it can be the last. Because iCognative by Brainwave Science is a modern, innovative security technology that can help to find the answers and solve the problem of crime in Pakistan. The main advantage of this new technological solution stands in its ability to distinguish between an innocent and a suspect, by detecting information present in the brain.

With the use of this modern security solution, law enforcement  is empowered not with assault weapons like AK47 that took life of Amal but with effective tool that will help gather valuable intelligence from suspects. By standardizing the use of first of-its-kind cost-effective iCognative technology in investigations and interrogations, officers will benefit from a scientific and objective means of solving crimes with accelerated rates of apprehensions of perpetrators and accomplices in any given crime. The involuntary brain response called P300 is the hallmark feature of the technology. The way the human brain functions fully eliminate all possible false negatives, false positives, and countermeasures.

The case of robbery associated with death of Amal might be a petty street crime, but the culprits must see the light of justice. The suspects apprehended in the case of armed robbery on the night that Amal was killed, must be subjected to iCognative test. Case facts published in the media such as: date and time of the incident when suspects were robbing people; location of the incident where police apprehended them; type and caliber of gun used by bandits to fire at police; testimonies of officers on site at that time, etc., can be utilized as Stimuli for the test. During the iCognative test, the stimuli selected for each suspect is flashed on a monitor, while system captures specific crime related brainwaves directly from the source of all information – the human brain. At the end of the test, the system analyses the brain’s responses to the respective stimuli through a series of algorithms and determines with 99.9% accuracy if the information is absent or present in the brain of suspect. Thus, distinguishes between a perpetrator/criminal and an innocent person.

Using iCognative Technology Intelligence Bureau can guide Karachi Police investigators in right direction to address problem of growing street crime.
