Ambala, August 13

The district police have cracked the whip on increasing number of vehicle thieves, home and shop burglars in Ambala.

The special drive was launched last month to check the thefts and burglaries after number of such cases rose in the district.

The crackdown, which was launched on July 1, yielded desired results with the arrest of 35 persons from whom 16 stolen vehicles and other valuables were recovered in the past almost one-and-a-half-months. In this way, at least 28 cases of vehicle thefts and burglaries were solved.

Sharing details, Ambala Superintendent of Police (SP) Abhishek Jorwal said the district police had set up check-posts in different parts of the district to check the movement of suspected and anti-social elements. "The special focus was on the vehicle thefts and burglaries," he said.

The Superintendent of Police disclosed that with the arrest of 35 criminals involved in at least 28 theft cases, four stolen cars, eight motorcycles, four scooters, five batteries, four LEDs, several bicycles, mobile phones, gold and silver ornaments, cash and other valuables stolen by them had been recovered so far.

The district police chief appealed to the residents to keep an eye on the movement of suspected and anti-social elements in their vicinity and report such cases to their nearest police station or post to keep the criminal at bay in the district.

The Superintendent of Police also asked the residents to ensure proper police verification of their tenants and domestic helps, besides informing their immediate neighbours and the nearest police station or post whenever they were leaving their premises locked for more than 24 hours.
