Petition for a Beat Chowky, increased police patrol & surveillance & installation of CCTV cameras in Jay Prakash Nagar, Goregaon East.
On Sunday (15th January 2017) night, while coming back from the North-West Derby screening, I was assaulted by 4 unknown persons in front of D Definity Commercial building in Goregaon East, at around 12.30 am (16th January 2017).
They rounded me up, threw me to the ground and battered and thwarted me in all possible ways. They vainly tried to snatch my wallet but managed to get my phone. I ran after them and somehow recovered my phone. Due to my resistance, one of them said, "Isko do shot laga". They were carrying some kind of weapon so I ran all the way back home.
I called up the police immediately and the cops managed to nab two of them. Although the police tried hard to convince me to keep it to a NC , I put in pressure and filed an FIR and two of the accused were immediately put behind bars, while two are still out open.
I am hereby humbly requesting all the residents of Jay Prakash Nagar to come together and apply for a 'beat chowky' in Jay Prakash Nagar. Please contact me or Mr. Parag Churi (+91 983 371 9634) if you wish to support this cause. Continuous presence of police will instantly bring down all kinds of crimes. We already have started a signature campaign for the same and documents are available for signatures.
When these goons had the audacity to attempt such a thing, with intent, on a grown male, it disgusts me to even think of a younger person in my place. We need to get rid of these anti social elements as soon as possible. I request the Goregaon Residents Association to take imminent collective action and request the police for a 'beat chowky' and added security on the streets.
Apart from the blows and contusions on my face, abdomen and arms, I am alright. Requesting everyone to be vigilant, stay safe and take care. And please get involved in the movement to make our locality safer. Cheers!
