Jagatsinghpur. Dec 6 (LocalWire) Local people, including passers-by, are reportedly restricting their public movement and are panicked due to rise in theft and snatching cases in different areas of Jagatsinghpur district.
According to reports, except one or two cases, police have not been able to nab the gang, much to the despair of the people.
Alleging police inaction, villagers and officials said the cops are instead harassing them on the pretext of conducting vehicle checks and raids.
“Several complaints have been lodged at Jagatsinghpur, Raghunathpur, Balikuda, Biridi and other police stations in frequent theft incidents. But no action has been taken on any of our complaints. Theft cases continue to rise,” said a villager.
