District SP promises better transport system

District Superintendent of Police Dr T D Pawar mentioned during a press conference on Sunday that 14 bikes and Rs 2.5 lakh worth jewellery were seized.

The style of crime

He explained that the arrested would visit different parts of the taluk, and, using duplicate keys, would steal bikes parked on the roadsides, on hospital premises and other such places. They would later change the number plates and sell the bikes in a different place.

The SP said that they followed the miscreants with a definite clue and arrested them. Investigation is on to capture some more such criminals, he added.

The arrested had undertaken the acts with an aim to make money and live luxuriously.
A total of 19 two-wheelers have been seized this year, from January to October. Six miscreants have also been arrested.

The police personnel who conducted the investigation and succeeded in arresting the criminals will be rewarded with cash and certificates, explained Dr Pawar.

Better transport system

The traffic on the roads in Chikkaballapur taluk and other places has increased in recent times. The transport system therefore needs upgradation. For this reason, action has been taken to put up notice boards, etc, he added.

The improvement in the system will take place in steps, he said.

Traffic police officers will be stationed on important roads. Traffic wardens should cooperate with these officers. The public can play important and effective roles by taking up the posts of traffic wardens. People who volunteer to become traffic wardens will be given all help and facilities to function well, said Dr Pawar.

Warden committee

A warden committee will be started to critically analyse the incidents of traffic mishaps in the taluk. The committee will have 40 members who will report such incidents in their respective wards to the police.

In case of accidents, the clear information provided by the committe members will aid investigation, he said.
