The city police has decided to set up a police post in sector 83, in the wake of increasing urbanization in the new Gurgaon sectors along the Dwarka expressway.
A team of Gurgaon police led by police commissioner Sandeep Khirwar visited the spot and inspected the plot, which has been earmarked for setting up the proposed police station on Wednesday.
Khirwar said that there has been steep rise in population in the area, and it needed more police presence.
“A police post will be set up in the sector in a few days and it will help in better policing of the area”, he said.
Initially, the police post will be set up in a built up area that has been offered by the developer Vatika.
The residents of sector 81, 82, and 83 beyond the Kherki Daula toll have been demanding more police presence as there has been a steep rise in petty crimes in their areas.
Prashant Rai, a local resident said that setting up police post will be a positive development as it would curb petty crimes as well as activities of miscreants roaming in the area.
Real estate developer Vatika, which is providing the space for setting up police post, said that the post is likely to become functional within the next fortnight.
“Land for setting up a police station has also been identified and it will be functional in next six months,” said Gaurav Bhalla, director, Vatika Limited.
Earlier, 10 new police stations in Gurgaon started functioning from May 8 taking the total number of police stations to 35. These police stations are divided in three zones — east, west and south.
The new police stations were set up at New Colony, Shivaji Nagar, Sector-14, Sector-9A, Bajghera, Sector-50, Sector-53, City Sohna, Sector-37, and Industrial Sector 7 Manesar, a police spokesperson said.
