With several people leaving behind independent houses and apartments locked for more than a week during summer vacations, burglars fancy their chances.

Police are asking citizens to cooperate with them in preventing burglaries. Among other things, they have been requesting citizens to inform the nearest police station about their travel plans and other necessary details.

There is no better word to call these Junctions of HSR Layout for what they have become, where accidents and collisions have become regular , few days ago an Innova turned turtle at 19th Main and 17th Cross Junction, and today an i10 collided with an Estillo car at 19th Main and Club Road Junction. Thankfully no deaths have taken place except for minor injuries, but do we need to wait until then?. The Authorities needs to build Speed Breakers at all these junction and install “Round About Island” specially at 19th Main and 17th Cross Junction which is very wide and creates lot of confusion among the drivers.
