Kohima, July 28 (EMN): Extortion and robbery top the chart among the cases registered at the North police station in Kohima this year with the two accounting for 20 out of 30 total cases recorded so far, informed a police officer.
He said that extortion and robbery cases were followed by theft and forgery; and that 4-5 cases in connection with extortion and robbery have already been registered at the police station in the last two months.
According to the officer, most of the cases were operations conducted by the police without receiving formal complaints, citing the example of cases like the highway robbery at lower PWD, and below NBCC hall where miscreants were caught extorting money at construction sites.
Some of the recent extortion cases also include the assault on LPG truck drivers on July 4 and the 9th. The Kohima police led by SDPO (North) apprehended all the three miscreants involved in the commission of the crime on July 24, it was informed.
Another case of robbery took place at Delhivery Pvt. Ltd., an online delivery service located at High school, Kohima, on the night of July 22, and the police arrested all the five persons involved in the crime on July 26.
In this regard, the police officer informed that besides cash and four mobile phones, a laptop that had been ‘crashed and thrown’ away, was recovered from the jungle. He added that they will recover more as three laptops were said to have been stolen.
The officer went on to say that cases like murder and robbery are “hardest” to crack as ‘these are organised crimes, pre-planned, and in most cases, evidences are erased’.
