FIVE ROBBERIES. One rape. Three murders and one daring abduction. Just in three days!

That’s quite a challenge for the new SSP, who spelt out his priorities loud and clear on the day of joining. But, hardly had he realised that the outlaws were just waiting for him to throw a challenge. 

As soon as newly posted SSP (Dr) GK Goswami planned to gear up and deal with crime and criminals, a group of five youths humiliated one of his COs in full public view on Tuesday.

With every change of guard in the district police, the crime graph shoots up usually but not in the manner in which the incidents of robbery took place after Dr Goswami’s joining as SSP Lucknow.

As Dr Goswami joined as the SSP here City Congress general secretary Rizwan Ahmed was allegedly kidnapped by goons on Sunday morning. Rizwan had named ex-DGP Yashpal Singh’s wife Geeta Singh, who is also a ruling party MLA, for allegedly orchestrating his abduction. Though he was released later Rizwan was allegedly detained and was assaulted brutally by the goons.

Rizwan had alleged in his complaint that Geeta Singh had grabbed land of graveyard in Gomti Nagar. As he had raised objection to the grabbing, he faced the wrath. Rizwan went on fast unto death on Monday demanding action against Geeta Singh.

SSP Dr Goswami, while talking to mediapersons soon after his joining, had laid stress on initiating action against land sharks and those involved in the land grabbing. A probe was reportedly ordered into Rizwan’s matter but there is no development. 

A gang of robbers robbed a Hapur-based businessman of Rs 6 lakh in Charbagh and a jeweller of jewellery worth Rs 1.5 lakh at Indira Nagar on Monday. Another robbery took place at a jewellery shop in Ashiana on Sunday. The robbers had injured a salesgirl and had decamped with the booty.

Despite having details about one of the accused in Charbagh case, the police are struggling for a breakthrough. The cops are clueless in Indira Nagar incident.

Besides, two other incidents of loot were reported in Ghazipur and Mohanlalganj respectively on Tuesday.

Two incidents of killing took place on Sunday and Monday respectively. While a man stabbed his wife to death in Hazratganj, a woman killed her husband on city outskirts. The police, however, include these two incidents as domestic crime in which police could not be held responsible.

On Wednesday morning, one-year-old daughter of a labourer couple, missing since Tuesday night, was found murdered in Aliganj. The killer was yet to be identified.
