Shivajinagar: Pune Police Commissioner Satish Mathur pointed out on Friday that the spurt in gang wars in the city was an outcome of huge rise in land prices in fringe areas.

“Local goons are hired at the behest of elements with vested interests to assert themselves before these fringe areas get formally included in the municipal limits,” Mathur said.

Speaking on the recent incident of eve-teasing in Bhosari, Mathur said that the police were keeping watch outside colleges and schools to avoid such incidents.

“We want to make women feel safe in the city,” added Mathur.

The police commissioner further said that the city police had acquired 36 new four-wheelers for patrolling in the city.

“This would help reduce our response time. We have also recruited 1,400 police personnel, which would add strength to the city police,” he said.

Mathur accepted the fact there was a delay in the CCTV installation across the city due to various technical reasons. “Installation of CCTV cameras will be completed for Zone-I by January 26. The rest will be completed within four months,” Mathur said.

The police commissioner further added that police were working towards solving the unsolved murders, like the Dabholkar murder case.

“Recently we solved a 13-year-old murder case. Our work is on,” Mathur said.
