A delegation of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders Gian Chand Gupta and BB Singal, on Friday, met commissioner of police (CP) Ajay Singhal and complained about the "poor"law and order prevailing in the city.
They also submitted a memorandum to the CP. In the memorandum, they mentioned that snatching mobile, cash and necklace was very usual phenomena in the city.
"Daily incidents of chain and mobile snatching are reported from various sectors but there is no improvement in the situation till date. Several times chains have been snatched from women sitting in front of their houses. Women, traders and youngsters feel unsafe to move freely in the city. The police control room (PCR) vehicles rarely reach in time at the site of call,"said the memorandum.
"Most of the traffic lights in Panchkula are non-functional and unguarded. Therefore, these areas easily become the accident-prone areas,"said Gian Chand Gupta.
"The cases of extortion are on the rise. Different gangs are operating in Panchkula from different parts of the country and are asking for extortion money from the Panchkula residents,"said BB Singal.
He added, "The police stations have become the dens of corruption. CCTV cameras should be installed at all police stations to make the everyday working transparent."
BJP delegation sat on dharna
The BJP delegation was waiting for the commissioner of police (CP) to arrive at his office from 11.30am. But the CP himself expressed his inability to be available to the delegation that sat on dharna in front of his office. Finally, the CP arrived at 1.30pm and the dharna was lifted then.
