Burglary attempt at tourist hub
Traders seek SSP Srinagar’s intervention
Srinagar, Dec 1: Burglars broke into many offices on the second floor of the Auqaf Building at tourist hub Dalgate last night and attempted to decamp with valuables.
The proprietors of three offices on the floor were shocked when they saw their front windows facing Dalgate chock open this morning. “The burglars have ransacked my offices and tried to open a safe containing some money. However they failed to open it. It is surprising how the burglars entered our offices and escaped the vigil of cops who are always deputed round the clock at the Dalgate crossing,” said Shamim Ahmad Shah proprietor of Shah Travel Pvt Ltd.
“It is difficult for anybody to reach our offices through front side without support or ladder,” he said adding “We tried to lodge a complaint with police but received a luke warm response.”
“The cops did not even take the fingerprints and footprints near the windows. The attempted burglary raises question marks over security of offices and banks in this tourist hub,” said a group of traders.
“We make a fervent appeal to the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Srinagar to order a probe into the incident and nab the accused at the earliest,” they said.
