There have been two incidents that have been reported in the end December and the beginning of the year of the car being stolen at gun point in Golf Course road. Famous for having the most expensive residential and commercial properties, the area continues to witness the growth of traffic with it being made into signal free road.
In the two incidents, the burglars at gun point were able to steal an Audi from a businessman and subsequently a vehicle was also stolen from the banker.
As there has also been liquor vending units that have come at the area, there have also been complaints by the women night shift workers of the insecurity posed to them who frequent these units. "It is definitely unsafe for us to venture out during night. There is also no safety when the male colleagues are there with us. Forget night there has been incidents when during the day time also men ogle at us, "said Sukriti who works in the multinational company that has its headquarters at Golf Course road. "The spate of recent incidents that have occurred is really unfortunate. We are trying to rectify the lapses and increasing the patrolling so that such heinous incidents do not take place again," said a senior police official from Gurugram police.
