Authorities have warned that child beggars taking advantage of Ramzan and Eid to beg have been reported several times.

Several residents have complained of women carrying babies and children under 12 knocking on doors for money before iftar or at other times.

Authorities have intensified awareness campaigns and crackdowns to curb begging in all streets, mosques and shopping areas. So beggars are now knocking on the doors of apartments asking for money. Residents of the area say that such people do not accept food and clothing and their only goal is money.

Police reminded residents to report such people to the authorities immediately and not to pay them. Police have caught many beggars before and during the first week of Ramzan.
