Jamshedpur: Owners of goods carrying auto-rickshaws put up a demonstration before the office of SSP Jamshedpur, Anoop T Mathew, on Monday, demanding protection against anti-social elements, especially during night.
The protestors alleged that they faced insecurity at night while transporting their goods from Parsudih Krishi Bazar Samiti to their destination. They said there was no security arrangement at the Bazar Samiti which led them to carry out their business under stress.
Leading the protestors, the outfit president Mantu Choubey and general secretary Bhavnath Singh said as many as 165 auto drivers were on agitation for the last three days.
They said an unidentified person had forcibly taken away a sack containing 50 kg of sugar near Sunsunia gate two days ago. The drivers had complained to police, but of no avail.
Police did not register any case in this connection.
