A member of Noida Extension Flat Owners Welfare Association (NEFOWA), Manish Kumar has tweeted to SSP by sharing with him the list of thefts and burglaries and requested him to check such cases.

Kumar said, “The thieves are specially targeting women in the area. The incidents of chain snatching is common in the area.”
“Most of the time, the thieves are captured on CCTV cameras. The footages have been submitted to the police. But, the thieves have not been caught,” he added.

On top of it, the cases of car thefts from outside the societies also happen almost on the daily basis. Police do file FIR in cases of car thefts. But, no real progress have been seen in such cases.

The residents requested the police to take cognizance of the matter and improve patrolling in the area. They also demanded check posts on the main roads.
