Feeling worried and insecure following the continuous burglary attempts by the suspected members of 'Kaccha Baniyan' gang, residents of Noida's Sector 51 on Wednesday wrote to Vaibhav Krishna, senior superintendent of police (SSP), Gautam Buddh Nagar, seeking police protection.

In the letter submitted by Sanjeev Kumar, general secretary of the residents' welfare association (RWA), he has complained stating the alleged gang members who burgled two flats Sunday midnight, tried to sneak into another house early Wednesday morning. Repeated attempts by such miscreants have put the people residing in the sector in fear, making them feel helpless and unsafe.

Kumar further informed the police saying that a similar incident took place on May 7 (Tuesday) where the same group of thieves entered the boundary wall of the Flat No E-36 and tried to open the window of the house locked from inside. While attempting to do so, an old lady who was inside the house, sleeping, woke up after hearing some noise. The moment the old lady saw these men, raised an alarm and started shouting for help. It was after the lady put the lights on and the dog started barking, these alleged gang members ran away jumping the boundary wall.

“Though security guards have been deployed on the entry and exit gates for residents' safety, the measure seems to be ineffective as burglars manage to enter the sector from the peripheral compound facing Sector 72. It is easy for them as the height of the compound is low,” Kumar informed the police.

Highlighting the issues related to security and safety of the residents across the sector, Sanjeev Kumar urged the SSP and the police department to initiate action against these miscreants as they are gradually becoming active in the area.

The suspected members of 'Kaccha Baniyan' gang burgled two flats (E-37 and E-40) and escaped with a car and other valuables Sunday midnight (May 6).
