The residents of Wanabal Rawalpora said burglars keep prowling in the area and have targeted many houses and shops in the past few months adding that for now the thefts were being prevented only by the vigilant locals who try to stay awake at night.
The owner of Al Madina store at Rawal Pora said his shop has been targeted at-least twice in the past few weeks.
