Udaipur crime -Thefts and robberies on the rise
Thefts and robberies are on the rise in Udaipur city.
Crime in Udaipur city is on the rise. In the last 26 days, 17 incidents of theft and robbery are examples enough to prove that criminals are much ahead in their activities and arrests in these cases have been unsatisfactory.
Police have been unable to arrest criminals in cases of theft and robbery. Many criminals are on the loose and the city is becoming a victim of these robbers almost every day. In the last 26 days, houses, shop and even temples have been looted. In most of these thefts, gold and silver jewellery have been stolen…mostly gold. 8 arrests were made which is almost a negligible number. It has been discussed that there are a number of gangs operating in the city.
Some are robbing on the pretext of giving sparkle to old jewellery, some on the pretext of cleaning the house and regular chain snatching incidents are heard of everyday. Public has even appealed to SP police to make the city free of this crime.
Surajpole police arrested three criminals belonging to a gang whose acts of thefts were based on the same modus operandi. This gang operated 4 times in the city. On the other hand, 3 others were arrested for stealing machinery parts from a factory in Titardi. 2 car thieves were also arrested.
