It has often been observed that burglars keep a watch to fix their ‘target’ in a housing colony or society before committing crimes. Areas like Sakchi, Bistupur main road, railway station, Kadma Sonari link road are more prone to such cases. The gang ride up to the victim in their motorcycle and ask for directions. At a convenient time they commit the crime and flee the scene.
