This fortnight's JP Nagar news round-up - Police blotter; NGO for the disabled organising cricket match

The communication software will allow the officials to know the precise location of beat constables and therefore assign the right person quickly and efficiently when a crime incident is reported. The system will also provide a website for each division that can be used by citizens to lodge complaints and grievances with local police station.

Around 90 signal points are to be installed in JP Nagar which will help sense the location of beat constables equipped with Blackberry mobile phones at real time. Delmia company has offered to sponsor 25 close circuit cameras (CCTVs) in public spaces for better vigilance.

Umesh requests residents to be wary and cautious when walking on the roads, with valuables, especially on quiet side streets. New techniques adopted by criminals include distracting people who have just withdrawn money from ATMs, by strewing 10 rupee notes on the ground. In the meantime the thieves would grab the valuables from the person and run away.

Umesh advices, “When residents go out on holidays, they must leave some light on“. This way it will not be obvious to thieves that a house is empty and ready to be burgled.

Police blotter

Thieves fails to bag ‘Mahalakshmi’ from temple

Burglars made a failed attempt to rob Mahalakshmi Temple, near Puttenahalli,  on the way to Jumbusavari Dinne and a ‘theft  attempt’ case has been registered in JP Nagar Police Station.

On 16th of this month, as usual, the Purohit closed the temple at 9.30 pm and left for his home. Next morning around 6 am, the Purohit noticed that someone had tried to get into the temple by breaking the iron bars of the temple windows. However they could not get inside the temple.

Absent mindedness can be expensive

ATMs have made it easy for bank account holders to withdraw money anytime, anywhere. In some ATMs, cards are inserted into the machine and ejected only after the transaction is complete. A man used his debit card at an ICICI ATM, JP Nagar 7th phase last Friday. Having forgot to collect his card, he realised it only a day late and filed a complaint at the JP Nagar Police Station. In the mean time, his card had been used to purchase a mobile phone, jewellery and more. The victim had to bear a loss of about Rs 12,075.

Thieves satisfied with car wheels

Near Jaraganahalli  Naidu Layout, a man parked his Tata Sumo on the road in front of his house on the 17th of this month, at 9.30 pm.  Some thieves used the trick of pretending to remove the car wheels to fix a tire puncture. Next morning, the car owner found that thieves have stolen two of his car wheels worth Rs 8000.
