Jamshedpur: A crime wave has gripped the city in recent months with figures showing a substantial increase in the number of murders, thefts and robberies taking place across the city.

The police administration has decided to increase night patrolling in the city, especially in Mango and Sakchi localities of the city.

Officials said that constables on foot would be deployed in a stretch of every one km for patrolling. Several other constables would be deployed for the purpose, besides patrolling by the local police.

“Burglaries have increased during the winter as many families are away on vacation. Now that the election process is over, the manpower position is back to normality. Specially constituted patrolling squads have already been deployed under the limits of the Mango and Sakchi,” said police official.

He, however, stressed upon developing intelligence gathering machinaries and intensifying patrolling around midnight. In the past one week, at least seven cases of burglary have been reported in the city and the suburbs. Most of the incidents happened in posh areas of Mango and Sakchi.

Meanwhile, search operation for helmets and original documents were also carried out near in strategic locations. Security has been beefed up and search is being carried out in various areas.

Police said that a gang might be involved in all these activities of crime. They have got a clue and on that they are hopeful of reaching the mastermind.

It has often been observed that burglars keep a watch to fix their ‘target’ in a housing colony or society before committing crimes. People whose movements were found to be suspicious should be placed under watch.

Housing societies, too, have been suggested to keep a sort of ‘neighbourhood watch’, he added. Among other measures records of robbers and burglars were being studied and a list of habitual offenders being narrowed down.
