Rampant Crime Uttar Pradesh


Can things ever change  in UP? Are people destined to live for ever in a lawless state? How can loot and rape of its citizens happen regularly as daily occurrences?

Clearly the criminal justice system has broken down completely in Uttar Pradesh. Police are completely ineffective. Politicians have rendered the police ineffective. Judiciary has failed to deliver justice to victims. Criminals roam Scot free while innocents are harassed.

Bulandshahr horror: Another rape at same spot just 12 days ago
 (Bulandshahr):
.     This is not the first time such a case has happened here, say residents of Dostpur village where a gang of robbers raped a 35-year-old Noida woman and her teenage daughter after waylaying their car on Friday . According to the villagers, just 12 days ago a few men had “brought a woman in a tempo and gang-raped her late into the night“.

Crime has become rampant in this area as it is deserted with no street lights or police picket, locals say. Devraj Thakur, former pradhan of the village, told TOI on Monday , “We got the news and immediately reached the spot after which the men fled. The woman was distraught, dishevelled. We stopped a police vehicle passing by and handed over to them a mobile phone and some clothes that the men had left behind. The police pocketed the phone and left. They later told the woman to come to the police station. We don’t know what happened to her after that.She was in a bad shape and needed help from the police.“

Govindpal Singh, another village elder, said, “Rapes happen here every few months but everyone is not able to muster the courage to file a report with the police.Even police don’t file cases even as the dangerous stretch has become a safe haven for criminals who often target travellers here.Had the police been vigilant in its patrol, the crime could have been averted.“

Kuldeep Sharma, another resident of the village, added, “All this started after the highway came into existence 18 months ago. Rapes occur occasionally but incidents of loot and dacoity are becoming commonplace here.“

DIG (Meerut range) Lakshmi Singh, however, brushed aside these claims.“This is at best the rumour mill at work. We do admit there have been a few lapses. We are doing everything in our means to bring the culprits to justice.More than half a dozen cops have already been suspended. We want to send out a strong signal not only to erring cops but also to criminals that no one will be spared.“

Police sources told TOI that “two similar incidents“ had occurred in the district on May 7 and May 12 this year.The same modus operandi was used -something was thrown at the vehicle to stop it, the occupants led out at gunpoint and then robbed and assaulted. Police, though, on both occasions had registered cases of normal theft (under IPC’s sections 379 and 356). The culprits in both the incidents were not arrested

GOOD SAMARITAN:

Constable Dharmvir found the passenger’s bag with cash and valuables

at a scanner in Nizamuddin station

 

       New Delhi:Had it not been for an alert cop, a 42-year-old man would have never got back his savings and valuables which he had lost at Nizamuddin station. Constable Dharmvir not only found the bag at a scanner machine but also returned it intact to the owner. 

    Shailendra Dhar, a resident of Mayur Vihar, approached the police on Friday evening after losing his bag containing around Rs 5 lakh, electronic gadgets like his iPad and camera, and his medicines for his spinal problem. A senior media professional, he was going to catch Chhattisgarh Sampark Kranti Express for his hometown Bilaspur.

       “A porter was carrying most of the baggage while I had this bag and my tripod. When we crossed the scanner around 5pm and went a little ahead towards the platform, I noticed that my shoulder bag was missing. I panicked and checked everywhere but could not find it,” Dhar said.
He approached police at Nizamuddin station. Additional DCP Sanjay Bhatia was informed and police started looking for the bag. “Its details were flashed at all exit and entry points and all points of suspicion were searched ,” Ravindra Yadav, additional CP, crime and railways, said.

       A team also began to scan the CCTV footage from cameras installed in and around the station. “On the footage at the X-ray scanner installed towards the Sarai Kale Khan side, we spotted Dhar entering with the bag on his shoulder but the exit camera footage showed him without the bag. This made it clear that he forgot the bag at the scanner in a hurry,” said Bhatia.

      Meanwhile, Dharmvir located Dhar around 8pm from the information flashed across the station.

     “At one point I lost hope that I will get the bag back but the cop showed immense sense of duty and perseverance in carrying out his duty. He has set an example for his colleagues and instances like these restore our trust in our police force which is often regarded as callous and corrupt,” Dhar said.

       Dharmvir will be rewarded for his honesty and setting an example for his colleagues.

      Lucknow: Women protesting against cops’ refusal to file an FIR on a missing six-year-old child were beaten up pitilessly by policemen in Aligarh on Thursday, with TV cameras recording the stomach-turning visuals of several activists brutalized by men in uniform.

      The child, who’d gone missing on Wednesday, was later found dead. This led to angry women and men taking to the streets demanding action against cops who had refused to file the complaint, and had instead asked the parents to look for their kid themselves.

      On Thursday, the discovery of the girl’s body in a garbage dump triggered largescale resentment in the area. It was alleged she was sexually assaulted before being strangled, which added to the anger among family members and their neighbors. Cops reached the spot to videograph the crime scene and complete other formalities. However, angry women insisted that they were treated badly and blamed the police for the girl’s death.

Delhi: Not Safe for Common Man : Unsafe for Women


Lutyens’ manned, rest unguarded

Capital Home To Both Safest, Most Dangerous Urban Areas Of Country

Josy Joseph TNN

New Delhi: Delhi Police is actually New Delhi’s police. The national capital’s police actually has two different yardsticks for law and order in the city. If you live within Ring Road, especially in Lutyens’ Delhi, you receive several times more attention than a person living beyond the exclusive zone.

       The statistics are there for all to see. They add to the recent debate kicked up by the findings of Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) of the home ministry about the undue police attention for VIPs at the cost of ordinary people. BPRD found that almost three cops were deployed per VIP as against just one cop for 761 ordinary Indians. The study showed that states and UTs had deployed 50,059 police personnel to protect 16,788 VIPs in 2010.

      The VIP culture of police forces is best captured in Delhi, which is home to both the safest and some of the most dangerous urban areas of India. The safest part is Lutyens’ Delhi, where the national government is located and most politicians live. Some parts of the rest of Delhi are among the most crime-prone urban areas of India.

         Rashtrapati Bhavan, the President’s home and office, best symbolizes the VVIP obsession of the police force. Delhi Police has deployed one joint commissioner, one DCP, three additional DCPs, 10 ACPs, 20 inspectors and another 1,000 men in Rashtrapati Bhavan. This is besides the 200 ITBP personnel deployed there, and President’s Bodyguard, an elite army unit.

         This massive, top-heavy force is in contrast to a joint commissioner heading the entire Northern Range of the city, a 621.3 sqkm area of over 75 lakh residents. A DCP heads an entire district’s police force. The range saw 16,299 IPC cases in 2011. Just 54% of these IPC cases were solved. The statistics are better for heinous crimes — 80.7% murders, 91.7% kidnappings and 95.5% rapes solved.

         A senior policeman said the contrast was reflective of the complex policing of national capitals around the world. “This is the seat of power, this is what defines India,” he said. “Please do not just compare crime. Police officers in New Delhi are heavily involved in VVIP movement,” he added.

            Delhi has 11 police districts, and there are on an average 12 police stations per district. Anywhere between 120 and 150 personnel are posted in each police station.

        The irony of the VIP culture is starker when it comes to the level of police stations. In the New Delhi area, serious crime is a rarity. Connaught Place police station saw no murder or rape in 2011. It had one robbery and 28 vehicle thefts. In fact, vehicle theft is the most frequent crime reported in the police stations of New Delhi.
Chanakyapuri police station, too, saw neither a murder or a rape, and just two attempts to murder and eight vehicle thefts. Barakhamba Road police station saw one murder and two rapes.

           In contrast, police stations in the rest of Delhi witness several murders and rapes. For example, in Narela police station, there were 12 murders, three rapes, 13 attempts to murder, 17 robberies and 133 vehicle thefts. In Bawana, there were nine murders and five rapes. In Alipur, there were nine murders and five rapes.

NET FRAUD: BEWARE


Net fraud: Masterminds blocking SIMs are abroad

Times News Network

      New Delhi: The net banking fraud in which bank accounts are emptied after a person’s sim card gets deactivated is the handiwork of a gang and the masterminds are some foreign-based computer experts who hack into people’s account through phishing, an online fraud. The foreign nationals were getting 35% of the amount while the ones who opened the bank accounts under a fake name were being given up to 50%. The rest of the amount was being divided between the foot soldiers.

     The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police arrested two people in this regard and they spilled the beans. “The gang would procure details of bank accounts of the victims to gain access through internet and transfer money to other accounts. Usually, the sim card of the victim’s mobile would also be deactivated by the gang fraudulently during the time of the transactions,” said Sandeep Goyal, joint CP, EOW. Those arrested are Mirza Ali alias Sanjay Soni(39)of Maharashtra and Pritam Mishra (27) of Ghaziabad.

     “A complaint about an unauthorized transaction was receivedfrom Dr VijayKher, a resident of Defence Colony. He alleged that a person had transferred Rs 20 Lakh from his account through fraudulent online transactions on October 19. His mobile phone had also got inactive during this period. He said he came to know about the cheating after he re-activated his phone and received a message from his bank,” Goyal said.

      A probe revealed that a large numbers of account holders in different banks in Delhi and other cities had been cheated by this gang. An elaborate investigation through IP address logs and other clues, along with discreet enquiries, led the police to identify the suspects.

    The modus  operandi was simple: the fraudsters would submit an application to the service provider to block the sim and a duplicate sim wouldbeissuedin placeofthe original one. After activating the duplicate sim,the accused would access the account of the victim on internet using the details already available with them like user id and password.
At the time of request of transaction for transfer of money, the bank would automatically generate a onetime-password (OTP) which would be received through SMS on the duplicate sim. The rest was simple.
