Trader foils robbery bid, seriously injured
Gurugram: It was a narrow escape for Sanjay Bansal, a trader in Tawdu area of Gurugram who was seriously injured when two bike-borne assailants fired gunshots
According to police, the incident occurred on Wednesday evening as the culprits wanted to rob him but could not do so after the victim resisited it and tried to fight with them. Bansal who has been admitted in a hospital in Gurugram is presently in the critical state.
Meanwhile, the police have filed a case and begun their investigations. "The victim as of now is receiving treatment in the hospital. We are hoping that he recovers from the injuries he has sustained. We have launched our investigations into the case and will get hold of the culprits soon," said a senior police official from Gurugam Police.
Complaining of law and order, traders have now been stating that not only thefts but now the trader community is being victimised with extortions, kidnappings and even murders.
Most of the traders on the outskirts have also led demonstrations regarding the weak law and order situation. The traders have been demanding more police vigilance on the outskirts of the city like Sohna, Pataudi and Badshahpur where the crime rates against the traders are rising rapidly.
"There is no doubt that a trader in the city does not feel safe and secure in the city. Today a trader can be easily targeted and harmed by the gangsters. The gangsters are emboldened that they can carry out a heist or murder in the daylight and get away with it. The Police must increase its presence in the outer areas of Gurugram," said Pawan Bansal, who runs a garment shop in Sadar Bazaar Gurugram.
