A number of incidents have been reported from Fine Home Apartments, Una Enclave, Kala Vihar and the neighbourhood Sai temple. But what are the cops doing?
Of late, there has been a spike in burglaries and petty thefts in East Delhi, particularly in Mayur Vihar Phase I. In the past two weeks alone, nearly six cases of theft have been reported from cooperative group housing societies, temples and shops in the neighbourhood. However, despite interrogating suspects and checking CCTV cameras, the police is yet to make any head way in the cases
Residents are understandably unhappy with the inefficiency of the police and say they are doing nothing beyond registering FIRs.
Recent incidents of theft have been reported from Fine Home Apartments, Una Enclave, Kala Vihar and the Sai temple in the vicinity.
Residents told City Spidey that two months ago, when a theft had occurred in Supreme Enclave, the DCP of the East Zone, Ombir Singh Bishnoi, had visited the area. “He had assured us that police patrolling at night would improve. However, the situation hasn't changed, and within 20 days thieves again targeted Una Enclave,” said Avisekh Kumar, a resident of Supreme Enclave.
Pawan Vasudev, a resident of Una Enclave, said, “Residents cannot have peace of mind until they see some assurance from the police. Also, management committees of residential societies need to increase cooperation with neighbouring establishments to prevent such incidents.”
Satish Sharma, a member of the managing committee of Fine Home Apartments, said the society had increased the number of security guards from six to nine and had also taken the decision to increase the height of its boundary wall. “The DDA park behind the society is a haven for antisocial elements," he said.
When City Spidey contacted Pandava Nagar's SHO, Janak Raj, and sought his response, he said, “No arrest has been made so far, but we are investigating the matter. Police patrolling has been increased at night.”
