In recent times, vehicle thefts have been on the rise in the neighbourhood. As a preventative measure, Abiramapuram police have been conducting surprise checks at key junctions in their zone.
On Monday evening, a team of four led by Sub Inspector Ananda Murugan were at the Warren Road- Dr. Ranga Road Junction for one such check. They stopped two-wheeler drivers at random and asked for registration certificate, insurance certificate and license.
A police official told Mylapore Times that the aim is to bring down the cases of vehicular thefts.
Through such surprise checks at different junctions and at different times in the day, we expect the number to reduce in the future, a policewoman here said.
