Jamshedpur: With the rising crime graph in the city, the Jamshedpur citizens are in the grips of fear. Murder, rape, theft, dacoity, snatching have become almost routine events and antisocial and criminal elements are throwing challenges to the police administration. What is more, the disconcerting feature of most of these crimes is that they are happening in broad daylight.
A Mahanagar BJP delegation led by its president Gunjan Yadav met the SSP and handed him a note drawing his attention to the incidences of crime that have spurted in recent times. The delegation urged the SSP to take immediate measures to curb the growing crime rate in a city that is otherwise known for its peace, education, culture and business. The citizens are perturbed and scared over the incidents. The BJP delegation assured the SSP that they would cooperate with every step the police administration took to ensure crime free city conditions.
Speking to newspersons after the meeting, Gunjan Yadav said that the festive season was just around the corner and if the growing crime graph was not curbed the festive spirit of the people would be dampened and overshadowed with fear. He said that the dacoity incidents in Bhalubasa, Ulliyan and Kadma, cases of snatching on deserted roads and breaking locks of shops were open challenges for the police administration. Most of the crimes, Yadav emphasized were occurring in broad daylight. The criminals had become more daring which showed that law and order in the city was abysmal.
The puja season was knocking and at such times, the district and police administrations should pull up their stockings and ensure that citizens were safe and a peaceful atmosphere prevailed.
The BJP demanded that the criminals be rounded up at the earliest and all criminal activities be thwarted. The BJP Mahanagar delegation led by Gunjan Yadav included Sanjiv Sinha, Sudhanshu Ojha, Pradip Mahto, Babua Singh, Anil Modi, Rakesh Singh, Manjit Singh, Pappu Singh, Jitendra Rai, Rajiv Singh, Boltu Sarkar, Prem Jha, Narayan Poddar, Mani Mohanty, Kaustav Roy, Binod Singh, Rajesh Singh, Suresh Sharma, Dharmendra Prasad, Ramesh Nag, Upendra Giri and Amar Singh.
