It is apparent that after relaxation of the lockdown, chain snatching and motorbike thefts have increased. In the year 2018, a racket of two-wheeler thefts had become active. The then Bunder police inspector, Yogeesh, had busted the racket and arrested six persons from Kasargod and Kanhangad. During investigation, it was found that the stolen bikes were sold to a garage owner at Kanhangad for nominal prices. The garage owner used to change the shape of the bike including the number plate and sold them for a much higher price.

People before parking their two-wheelers, have to take the following precautions:

1. Never forget to take away keys of the vehicle after parking.

2. Apply handlock of the vehicles.

3. Park in public places and observe the safety aspects.

4. It is better to park where CCTV cameras are installed as the thieves keep an eye on the presence of cameras before stealing.

5. Never leave behind registration certificate, insurance, pollution certificate etc inside the vehicles.

    What a low IQ here ppl blaming govt & justifying crime. So enough job during previous govt ? There's job everywhere only hard work will earn money. Park your bikes only where CCTV cameras are installed. Stolen bikes are used for crime as an accessory.

    Vehicles owners must think 2 times before taking vehicles out side whether place is avilble for parking or not. Nobody following rules and no time to read the parking conditions. They only know to blame traffic department Police. If there is no parking slots in commercial building, avoid visiting those places. When customers are not visiting, then those commercial building occupants will automatically make arrange for parking. Don't park where there is no safety. Paid parking also introduce coupons systems, Then safety is 100%. If traffic department Police seize vehicles where parked at unauthorised places, then vehicles must release after 15 days. Automatically slowly people will educated themselves.

    Crimes have increased due to Modi's failed economic policies. Look a the high unemployment rate, collapse of SME's, Demonetization scam, botched up GST. It will only worsen as long as Modi is in power.

    4th and 5th precaution as mentioned above seems to be absurd. Everywhere CC TV cameras are not yet installed. Still road digging work is under progress. I n most of the places There are no proper places to park our vehicles. One cant carry with him whenever he park and goes to attend duties, making purchases etc. Only office people can take the documents with them. Otherwise if its lost in transit again another headache to get the copies etc.

    During inspection, Traffic Police insist on carrying original documents in the vehicle. Photocopies are not acceptable to them. They are happy to slap fine on owners of the vehicle if original documents are not shown to them. Do they expect us to carry our vehicle documents whenever we park our vehicles.? Who will find a solution.

    Dionysius D'Sa, Mangalore - Original documents not required man where are you in this world ? Orginal is required only when your vehicle meets with accident at that time you have to carry original to police station & insurance office. Which cop is asking you for original RC / insurance / DL during routine traffic stop ? I have been stopped several times I only show duplicate laminated DL + Xerox of insurance but original pollution cert coz photocopy is not necessary. Laminate Original DL at any shop for 100 rupees. Keep original at home.

    One good suggestion. All bike owners must have have a valid identification in their pocket with picture. Parking lot need to be monitored with security guard and their salary should be given by the parking person.

    That's a lame excuse, unemployment & inflation was there since beginning it doesn't mean that crime is justified. would you steal if you don't have a job ??? Or work hard to earn a living ?
