Rs 1.35 lakh looted from a milk trader at Telco

Jamshedpur, July 10: In yet case of loot, two unidentified bike-borne criminals looted Rs 1.35 lakh from a milk trader in front of Hill Top School in Telco on Monday afternoon.

The incident took place as the victim, identified Mohan Sahu (35) was on his way to deposit the money at the IDBI Bank’s Telco branch on his bike from his house at Parsudih.

OC, Telco police station, Shankar Thakur confirmed about the loot of Rs 1.35 lakh from a milk trader.

” We are investigating the incident. We have set up checkings at the all the exit points in Telco and adjoining Birsanagar, Govindpur and Golmuri soon after getting the complaint,” said the officer-in-charge.

Despite the claim by the district police authority that they are carrying out round-the-clock patrolling by both the Mobile Tigers (cops on the bikes) and also the Police Control Room vans at specific points across the city the crime-graph of the steel city continues to rise.

Two youths armed with pistols swooped over the house of a 30-year-old man, Suraj Kumar Mahto at Agrico and fled the scene having launched a gun-shot attack on a young woman at Agrico under Sitaramdera thana area on Sunday night.

The victim, Manju Devi (26) escaped as the shot that had been fired from close range pierced through her neck. Mother of a five-year-old boy, Manju has been admited at the Tata Main Hospital where her condition is described as out of danger.

“It is surprising several cases of murder and attempt to murder incidents have taken place recently and that too in the broad daylight but in none of the case the police has reached the miscreants involved in the cases,” said Anil Naredi, a city-based businessman.

It may be mentioned that figures show a substantial increase in the number of murders, thefts and robberies taking place across the city from past one month.

Nonetheless the rising cases of crime in the city have forced the business community to raise voice against the detracting law and order situation for additional security arrangements.

The police are yet to nab the offenders, but the business organisations have expressed concerns.

“The police have tried to beef up the security arrangements in the city carried out arms checking drive at strategic locations but nothing substantial has come out of his initiatives. Additional police force need to deploy in areas like Mango, Jugsalai, Pursudih which are prone to such activities.

Our city has the reputation of being the safe but in few days crime graph has witnessed a sudden rise.

It is high time that police identifies such criminals and action is taken against them.

It is the duty of every police station to keep a vigil look on crime cases in their areas and take action against the culprits,” said a social worker.
