Disturbing: Ggn robbers strike with impunity even in daytime
Gurugram: If you are planning to move out of Gurugram for few days with your family leaving your house unattended then you must be wary. There has been a spate of brazen crimes which the burglars are targeting homes and in the process from cash to jewellery worth lakhs are being taken away.
In the past few months the victims have ranged from businessmen, MNC professional to recently a retired Army officer. Not only are the bungalows in posh residential colonies being targeted, even high rise condominiums are being successfully targeted. In most of the residential colonies like Palam Vihar, Ardee city, Sushant Lok and Sector -56, residents have complained that burglars not only target at night but also in the broad daylight.
The danger of daylight robbery was witnessed earlier this year when a group of robbers entered a house in Sector-28 which they beat up an elderly woman who was alone in the city. In September last year, a 55-year-old widow was brutally murdered in her Sushant Lok bungalow after suspected burglars ransacked the house.
"Robberies have been a major law and order problem in the city. However, the biggest concern is most of these criminals who are targeting houses even in the day light and are also successful in their attempt. Ironically, not only are these people targeting wealthy houses but even the middle classes are not secure," said Ranjit Dhawan, a city resident.
"As the population of the city increases, crimes like robbery also will be reported on a large scale. We have taken cognisance of it and are taking actions. In most of the cases we have been able to attain success," said a senior police official from Gurugram police.
