Residents of Alpha II, Greater Noida were in for a rude shock when they woke up in the morning. Their residential society bore tell-tale signs of overnight vandalism. Several gates were ravaged and the CCTV cameras installed there tampered with.
The RWA said the vandals broke the locks of the gates. While the intruders are yet to be identified, RWA members suspect it to be handiwork of the group that lost in recently held RWA elections.
RWA president, Naveen Bhati, met the SP Dehat Avishek Yadav and apprised him about the development.
He said while the sector has several gates, some of them were kept permanently locked to block entry of trespassers. Only a few gates were kept open and these too were closed at night.
Thanks to these measures, cases of theft could be brought under control. Now that all the locks are gone the sector is exposed to intrusions and burglaries.
Speaking to City Spidey, FOGRWA president, Ilam Singh Nagar, alleged involvement of the losing party in the elections in the crime. “This is not the way to react after losing an election in a democracy. They could have avenged their loss electorally,” he said.
He urged the police to investigate the matter at the earliest and bring the culprits to book.
Mahesh Sharma, a resident, told City Spidey that in the absence of locks the sector has once again become a happy hunting ground for anti-social elements. Outsiders can be easily spotted sitting in the parks.
SHO of Kasna Kotwali, Anil Pratap, informed that investigation has been initiated after receiving complaints about the incident.
