Berhampur, July 8 (LocalWire): Worried over the spurt of cheating and snatching of Gold ornaments from senior citizens by miscreants impersonating themselves as police personnel in the Silk City, police on Monday launched a special motorcycle patrol here.
Twenty-two teams of two police personnel will be patrolling the city. They will patrol the streets, crowded places and other isolated areas where normal patrolling vehicles cannot reach, said SP (Berhampur) Pinak Mishra.
They will not only thwart the recurrence of such crimes but will also create awareness among the people to not fall prey to such miscreants, he said.
At least five such cases were reported in the city during January and February and once again recently.
Mishra said with patrolling such incidents will hopefully come to an end.
