The Gurgaon police on Tuesday inaugurated a police post at Vatika INXT in Sector 83. The police said that the move is aimed at providing security to residents of new sectors.
Gurgaon commissioner of police, Sandeep Khirwar, opened the police post for functioning.
The post was set up after residents of the area alleged that incidents of crime have increased in these new sectors and demanded a police station to cover sectors 81 to 85.
It was reported that five unidentified persons snatched a Mahindra XUV from an IT executive at gunpoint on July 29. The victim is a resident of Sector 83 and told the police that his vehicle was snatched around 9.30 pm while he was on his way to buy paan from a shop located 300 metres from his house.
The next day, residents had also protested at Kherki Daula police station demanding increased police presence after several car snatching incidents were reported in the new sectors.
Welcoming the move, Rahul Gupta, a resident of Vatika INXT, said, “This will definitely boost security in the area.”
Khirwar said they want to assure residents that the police are taking serious steps to improve the law and order situation. He said the CM is determined to set up more such posts in the new sectors. Khirwar said the police post would be under the Kherki Daula police station and the SHO would pay regular visits.
Pranav Garg of Mapsko Casabella in Sector 82 said, “This move will curb crimes in the area.”
Real estate developer Vatika had provided the space for setting up police post.
Gaurav Bhalla, managing director, Vatika Hotels, said, “A dedicated police station for the area is already in progress. The new police station will further tighten security in Vatika INXT and surrounding areas.”
On May 8, the city got 10 new police stations. At present, the total number of police stations in Gurgaon is 35, which is divided into three zones — east, west and south.
