As the traffic in Hyderabad grows at a rapid pace, many measures are being taken by police to reduce it. It has been difficult to control traffic in the metro city even after implementing several measures.
As part of its efforts to mitigate the influx of traffic, the government has proposed a ring road. To curb traffic jams, the traffic police intend to close some bus stops in the city, according to the latest reports.
Traffic police are currently reviewing bus stops at Mehedipatnam, Afjalgunj, and Punjagutta circle. Therefore, they believe that closing these bus stops would reduce traffic and traffic jams in the main areas of the city. The employees and students in the city, on the other hand, believe that the new rule will make commuting more difficult for them.
The big spike in mobile thefts in buses
The threat of mobile theft is increasing in TSRTC buses. Students with their mobile phones during peak hours are a prime target for pickpockets. Even after filing complaints, the victims say they were unable to recover their stolen phones.
The RTC and the police are urged to control the menace. There has been an increase in thefts of mobile phones from buses and bus stops, especially during rush hours. The thefts occur in crowded bus stands such as Secunderabad, Uppal, Ameerpet, Kukatpally, and Mehdipatnam, as well as on the city’s outskirts, where colleges like Ibrahimpatnam and Ghatkesar are located.
Students in Rachakonda have lodged several complaints after their phones were stolen. The city is reportedly home to several mobile phone theft gangs.
At one police station within Rachakonda limits, over 10 complaints were lodged on a single day.
B Adarsh, a student at Anurag Engineering College, Ghatkesar, said “earlier this week, both my friend and I lost our mobile phones in an RTC bus. At the time, there were many students boarding the bus at the bus stop. After we got in, our phones were gone from our pockets.”
