armed robbery

Last night my father was in an electronics shop in Bahadurabad when it was robbed. The armed robbers took his cell phone and other valuable stuff from the store. After the robbery they dialed 15, the police emergency number, to inform the police, but the police was so busy in protecting the people that they didn’t even answer the phone. Then they called local police station to report the robbery. After good 15 or so minutes, two police men came in a bike, noted down everyone’s comments, and left. Whether or not they will do the investigation and bring the criminals to justice has always been a big question mark, so no big expectations here. But it sure is disturbing if a robbery can happen in a crowded area like Bahadurabad.

    I wouldn’t hold my breath for justice to be served. Last year, a bunch of men broke into my home in broad daylight claiming to be with the CIA to gain entry. A few months ago, another friend’s wooden door was broken down in broad daylight by some robbers who then proceeded to enter the house and loot everything in sight. In both cases, neitheer the perpetrators nor the stolen property has been found. I suppose when something like this happens, the usual attitude now is to just be thankful nobody got hurt.

    well.. in such circumstances one shouldn’t try to act like a hero or something… its wise to volunteerly handover your wallet, mobile and watch :o) .. human beings are known to kill each other for even 5 Rs… or for no reason whatsoever!
