Haridwar, January 15
Local people, traders and activists of the BJP today staged a protest at City Control Police Tower, near Har-ki-Pauri, against the rising chain snatching incidents in the city.

The protesters raised slogans against the police and criticised the deployment of police personnel on security duty of VIPs in Haridwar due to which proper service could not be provided to the common man.
Led by Vikas Tiwari, BJP activists also met city police chief Dr Kiran Lal Shah and handed over a memorandum to him. They demanded deployment of PCR vans on the line of New Delhi so that criminal activities could be checked and the people could easily lodge complaints. “Mere assurance will not do. Police officials need to take action, as their lackadaisical approach has led to a rise in criminal activities. We don’t feel safe here,” said Tej Prakash Sahu, a trader.
Shah assured the protesters of intensive policing to check chain snatching.
