Dwarka: Kids residing in Dwarka societies are somewhat heartbroken these days. Their cycles are the target of local thieves. People have shared messages with photographs in different WhatsApp groups about theft incidents to make the community aware. Parents have filed FIRs with the police as well.
Jitender Uppal, president, Himachali Cooperative Group Housing Society, Sector 3, informed that an expensive cycle was stolen from his society on June 28. He shared the copy of the FIR with CitySpidey to highlight the matter. He said, “It looks like a gang of bicycle thieves is active in our area once again. They are well dressed and enter societies with confidence, roam around the society compound and after identifying expensive bicycles, they steal them. One cycle was stolen from our society and I gathered more such reports from surrounding societies. We have filed the FIR and are waiting for action from the local police.”
Uppal said that on July 3, a similar incident was reported in Sanghamitra CGHS, Sector 4 as well. He shared the message received in other resident WhatsApp groups and informed that on June 21, a similar incident was reported in Prodhyogiki Apartments, Sector 3 and one in Astha Kunj Apartments, Sector 3 as well.
“Kids in the societies are sad as their cycles have been stolen. I noticed a pattern -- these thieves steal one cycle from one society. The timing is usually from afternoon till sunset. We want quick action to be taken by police and stolen bicycles should be recovered,” Uppal added.
SK Meena, DCP, Dwarka, said, “Such incidents are in the knowledge of police and there might be a gang behind it. We will nab the culprits soon.”
