How safe are the elderly in Ahmedabad?

The senior citizen of Ahmedabad is no longer safe, as per the reports of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).

For instance, take the loot and murder case of 75-year-old woman Rambha Patel, a resident of Ghatlodia.The Karmacharinagar Housing Society, part-2, resident was found strangulated with a cloth by her daughter Bhagwati Patel around 2 pm on Thursday. There was no sign of struggle at the crime scene. Cops say CCTV footage from the house shows a courier boy entering it with two boxes. The two gold bangles that the victim was wearing were found to be missing from the spot. Deepan Bhadran, DCP of Crime Branch, said, “We are investigating the case. More CCTV footages have been recovered but we cannot reveal further information right now as it may affect the probe.”73% crime against senior citizen of state reported from AhmedabadAccording to the NCRB data, Ahmedabad ranked third in the incidents of crime against senior citizens in 2016. Out of 496 crime cases registered against senior citizens in Gujarat in 2016, 362 were reported from Ahmedabad, which is almost 73 per cent of the total cases.While 68 cases were reported in 2014, it reduced to 17 in 2015 only to rise to 362 cases in 2016.MK Rana, ACP of Prevention of Crime Branch, said, “Senior citizens are the soft target for the accused. Not just elderly but all people should remain alert. We conduct several awareness programmes for senior citizens regularly and also issue guidelines. But most of them don’t follow it.”He added, “If a senior citizen lives alone, his or her relatives should have the information of the people visiting the house including milkman, newspaper boy, cook and domestic help. Most of the time, these aspects are neglected.”The top cop added that informed and updated relatives not only help avert crimes against elderly but also increase the possibility of police to catch them after committing the crime.AHMEDABAD NO CITY FOR ELDERLY?A LOOK AT 2017 On October 12, Meena Jog, 60 was attacked by four people while she was alone in her house in Vidyanagar Flats near Keshavbaug Party Plot in Ahmedabad.

Two more cheating cases lodged against Sajid Syed

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>State in-charge of NGO Helping Hands, Sajid Syed, found two more complaints of cheating lodged against him. The complaints were lodged with the Navrangpura and Vadaj police stations on Monday. In one of the cases, he ordered four golf cars from a Mumbai-based company, but made the payment with a cheque that was dishonoured, while in the second case, he cheated a man by not paying him for having CCTV cameras installed in Vadaj, as per police sources.As per Navrangpura police, Syed had ordered four golf cars for Rs17.12lakh in February. The golf cars were to be given to the police training academy in Junagadh. However, he made the payment for the same through a cheque which bounced. When the owner of the company and the complainant Parinda Patel tried to contact Syed, his phone was switched off and even his office was closed, after which Patel approached Navrangpura police and lodged a complaint.Navrangpura police inspector (PI) RV Desai said, “The accused took delivery of the cars, but didn’t intend to pay for it as the cheque he gave while making the deal was dishonoured. We have lodged a complaint and further investigation is on.”In the second case, complainant Daval Shah stated that Syed had approached him nearly three months ago in order to have 60 CCTV cameras installed in and near the Vadaj police station. They had even visited the police station and spoken to the inspector, after which Shah installed eight cameras in the area, but the payment of Rs80,000 was never made. Vadaj PI VG Rathod said, “Daval came to us and said that Syed was not picking up his phone nor had he made the payment for the installation of the cameras. Even I tried calling him (Syed), but he did not respond to my calls either, after which we lodged a cheating case against him.”
