To ensure safety and security of people working during late nights and for party-goers, the Gurgaon police claimed to have deputed policemen at all intersections during the night hours.
Though the city is in close proximity to the IGI airport, people have apprehensions about travelling to Gurgaon during the night hours.
However, the scenario is all set to change and the city will now be a safe zone for them, senior police officials have claimed.
The city also houses a majority of malls and multi-national companies, including BPOs, which also calls for upping the security apparatus here.
KK Sindhu, commissioner of police, told Hindustan Times on Monday, “We’re working on the closing time of pubs and bars. We also plan to depute PCR vans and motorcycle-borne personnel to maintain vigil. This is because people enter into brawls under the influence of liquor.”
“I don’t want people to term Gurgaon as a place for brawls. Indeed, it should be the most happening place in NCR. People should feel safe coming to our city. People working till late in the night need not worry about their safety. The police will maintain vigil at all times.”
Sindhu also said that the safety of women was their prime concern.
“We will also ensure that SIM cards are not issued to any person without his ID proof and other details. The practice needs to be stopped. It is compulsory for dealers to seek ID proof before selling a SIM card,” said Sindhu.
Stressing upon the practice of tenant verification, the police commissioner said, “People should religiously practice tenant verification. Many people avoid doing so and later repent. I request all landlords to verify the details of tenants before renting out their houses.”
We will also initiate an awareness drive educating people not to solicit rides from strangers. By doing so, they are putting their lives at risk, he added.
