Mysuru, February 27:- There have been numerous complaints of two-wheeler thefts in the city these days. Now the thieves have gone a step ahead and stolen the motorcycle of a police head constable parked in front of the police station.
VV Puram Traffic Police Station head constable Nagendra Murthy has filed a complaint stating that his Hero Honda Splendor motorcyle (KA 09 EC 6361) parked in front of the police station on February 24 at 5:20 pm was stolen when he came to take his bike at 7:45 pm. He said that the bike was nowhere to be found.
This incident has caused more worry to the owners of two-wheelers in the city. Citizens alleged that the city police are not working efficiently as chain snatching, cheating, cell phone snatching and two-wheeler thefts are increasing in the city. They also alleged that police are only targeting bike and scooter riders who don’t wear helmet and pedestrians at zebra crossing. A working woman alleged that the police imposed a fine of Rs 2,500 saying that her vehicle had crossed over the zebra mark on the road. Now the citizens are wondering as to how the police will safeguard public properties when they can’t safeguard their own vehicles. (KS, NGB)
