The crime rate in Pakistan has increased drastically within the last decade. It may be because of high unemployment, increasing poverty, rising inflation and urbanized setups. Few non-economic constraints are also responsible for it. The people who are victims of a crime suffer at times heavy losses but those who are yet to be victim, suffer from restlessness with preoccupation of worry and fear. This situation affects the whole apparatus of productive working and routine life. The selected study has been made with the reference to ‘Central Prison Karachi.’ The 301 convicted male prisoners were selected via stratified sampling method. The data was collected by interviewing them. The questions were mostly close-ended, while some were open-ended. For each question, tables and their percentages were drawn, and chi-square method was adopted to find out the possible relationship between variables and to test the validity of hypothesis.
