More cases of thefts, stabbing: Crime rate witnesses surge in Mangaluru

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru

Mangaluru, Oct 20: Cases of theft, robbery, attack are gradually increasing in the district including the police commissionerate limits. This has become a huge challenge to law and order situation.

Under the limits of police commissionerate, after Covid-19 unlock, crime cases are increasing. In the last three months, more than 50 theft cases have been reported. In the month of July, five bike thefts, one case of chain snatching and 10 house break-in thefts, in September, 8 bike thefts, one robbery, one chain snatching, and 14 house break-in thefts have been reported. Even in October, bike thefts, robberies and chain snatching cases have continued.

In the past 15 days, cases of murder and attempt to murder have been reported in Surathkal, Kavoor, Moodushedde and Ullal. The police department has failed to curb such incidents.

Miscreants are involved in the crimes without any fear of law and order in the district. In the past, police commissioner Chandrashekar, Sandeep Patil, superintendent of police Sharanappa, and Sudhir Reddy were successful in curtailing crime.

There is suspicion that certain organisations are behind attack and attempt to murder cases reported in Dakshina Kannada and Mangaluru police commissionerate limits. Through provocative speeches, organisations are making efforts to disrupt peace in the society. The police department should control these things.

Cases in the past few days include miscreants attacking a petrol pump manager and stealing Rs 4.20 lac from him on September 28, youths brandishing lethal weapons and threatening a youth with life on October 7, youths assaulting two brothers near a Math in Panjimogaru on October 9, two cases of stabbing on October 13 and 16 in Panjimogaru and Pumpwell respectively where one died in the latter case, an attempt to murder of a BJP worker on October 18 and a yet another incident of stabbing in Ullal on October 19.

    The investigation in crimes is done by the inspector at the jurisdictional police station.Conviction is much more important than detention and arrest, as usually watertight cases are not done (reasons left to your imagination) the accused is let off and repeats crime because he knows how to get off the hook. In a case, if conviction is not done the inspector should be made liable, physically and financially. This will reduce crime in the city.

    A complete breakdown of law and order. Keep on fighting amongst ourselves because of religion, while prices are skyrocketing think of finding fault with other people's religion. Elect uneducated leaders who cant even speak properly and have no decency. Smart city , with brainless people
