Vignettes from Noida, Greater Noida and Gurgaon

Here are the six City Spidey picks from the National Capital Region (NCR):


Cops want check on two-wheelers, heavy vehicles: The traffic department has sought permission from Noida Authority to include two-wheelers and heavy vehicles in the database of the Highway Traffic Management System (HTMS). Since the database doesn't include these vehicles, the cameras installed along the 25-km Noida-Greater Noida Expressway detect only the registration numbers of light vehicles. Hence, challans are issued only to four-wheel light vehicles.

Woman's head smashed for resisting molestation: Some men smashed three glass bottles on the head of a 32-year-old woman who tried to resist molestation. The woman, owner of a paan-cigarette kiosk in front of Gaur Grandeur Apartments in Sector 119, was assaulted by the culprits late on Monday night when she was closing her shop. The incident left her seriously injured.

FONRWA and RWAs meet Noida Authority for proper tackling of stray sterilisation: FONRWA met Deputy CEO of Noida Authority Saumya Srivastav and demanded that proper sterilisation of stray dogs be carried out, or they would take to the streets in protest. Another group consisting of several RWA representatives met Noida Authority CEO Rama Raman about the issue. 

Greater Noida

Showcause issued to builders: Four builders who had given possession of flats in their projects without obtaining completion certificates were issued showcause notices. The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) gave them 15 days to reply.


Insurance racket busted: With the arrest of four men, police claimed to have unearthed an insurance fraud racket.  Members of the racket, former employees of a defunct BPO, were accused of duping several policyholders of lakhs of rupees. Their modus operandi was to ask people to deposit "processing fee" in a bogus bank account upon the maturity of policies and swindle the money. The police said they even duped some foreigners. A city court, where they were produced, remanded them to a five-day police custody.

Employees cheat Honda dealer: Four employees of a Honda dealer in Badshapur were arrested for selling discounted vehicles at MRP and sharing the discount money among themselves. They, thus, duped the owner of the dealership of lakhs of rupees. The four were produced before a city court, which sent them to judicial custody. Meanwhile, the hunt is on for the fifth accused, who is at large.
