Crime rate sky-high

Crime rate sky-high

THE crime rate in my town is now beyond description. The life of the people has become miserable due to crimes like car snatching, robbing money on gunpoint, etc. The town police seem to be doing nothing to control crime.

A week earlier, two shops in our locality were looted when burglars broke the locks of shops in G5-Market and took away cash and major items.

Security guards are not well-trained. Most of them belong to far-flung areas and know nothing about security issues while it is suspected that some of them are involved in such crimes.




A village called Satokatla is said to be a safe haven for criminals.

The chief minister should resolve the issue.
