Builder, 2 others detained for 5 hours for 'feeding strays' 27.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
A 34-year-old builder, his driver and another man were detained at the Sampigehalli police station for more than five hours on Friday for feeding stray dogs. Rohith Chandrashekar, his driver Asif and an autorickshaw driver were picked up by the police from MS Ramaiah North City, a gated community off Thanisandra Main Road, northeast Bengaluru, while they were feeding strays. The action was taken after a neighbour filed a police complaint against Chandrashekar for causing a "nuisance". "I felt humiliated to stand barefoot near the lockup for hours like a criminal. I had to give a written apology to police saying I would not cause a nuisance henceforth by feeding the dogs," Chandrashekar told DH. For the last four years, he has been taking care of eight stray dogs, of which four live with him in his house. He would feed them twice — after midnight and before daybreak so as not to "disturb" anyone. Balaji, a neighbour, had complained to the Residents' Welfare Association (RWA) many times. But the RWA ...

Crime-fighting through CCTVs 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Spot a criminal in his act and track him with that visual footprint. Packing Bengaluru's Central Business District (CBD) streets with CCTVs, the city police are revving up their surveillance game. But how does that work in those dark, desolate roads on the city's outskirts? Danger lurks in every corner for thousands of working women walking that last mile home. As darkness envelopes the streets, CCTVs, even if installed in big numbers, will hit a blind alley. The message is clear: Unless the city police, BBMP and Bescom work in tandem, safety will remain a weak point. More cameras The addition of 679 CCTV cameras by end of April will see the number skyrocket to 1,008. But that is impressive only in the CBD. The City Police Commissioner admits that without adequate streetlighting, reliability of the cameras will remain under a shade. Illuminating the streets is clearly the BBMP's task. But maintaining the estimated 4.8 lakh street lamps in the Palike's jurisdictional area of about 800 sq km is not an easy ...

Sarjapur residents protest felling of trees for road-widening 25.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
To raise the issue of age-old trees being cut down due to the recent road-widening work at Sarjapur, an awareness walk was held by Sarjapur Resident Welfare Association (SRWA). The RWA members, who in the recent past have witnessed felling of a number of trees due to road-widening on Dommasandra-Sarjapur Circle, pressured the state government to look at possibilities of replanting and relocating these old trees before the next phase of road-widening is implemented on Sarjapur-Attibele Road. "The road-widening work is being undertaken by Karnataka Public Works Department (PWD). We became aware of the issue only after the road work started and are now doing our best to save at least the banyan and peepal trees. On the Dommasandra-Sarjapur Circle stretch, work has gone on in full swing and many trees, some more than 150 years old, have already been axed," said Joy V R, secretary, SRWA. The volunteers and RWA members plan to submit a signature appeal to the Forest department, PWD and Anekal Town Planning ...

Residents want surveillance for safe neighbourhoods 25.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Bengalureans are all for increasing CCTV coverage of the city and many Residents' Welfare Associations (RWAs) have already reaped benefits from getting watchful electronic eyes in their neighbourhood. Jyothi Prasad, a civic leader in Govindarajanagar, vouched for the technology, giving the example of her area. "More than 30 cameras were installed about three or four months ago. Earlier, we used to have incidents of chain-snatching, garbage dumping and vehicle thefts but now the frequency has come down drastically," she said. The RWA of her area worked with the corporator to identify spots where the infrastructure was most required. Jyothi said that residents are making use of the facility and asking for copies of the tapes. An incident of eve-teasing was also caught on tape and the perpetrators were arrested within 24 hours by identifying the vehicle registration paper, Jyothi said. Surveillance cameras not only fight crime but if installed near black spots, they prevent garbage dumping, too. Mohammed ...
