NMBOA advises public to be cautious with belongings
Dimapur, Sept. 8 (EMN): The New Market Business Owners’ Association (NMBOA) Dimapur has advised the public to exercise utmost caution and remain alert while visiting the New market especially with their belongings and have asked its NMBOA members to remain vigil to avoid being robbed and falling victim to false tricks by anti-social elements during the festive season.
A press note from the association informed that CCTV cameras have also been installed at various locations in New Market which is one of the largely thronged market and vulnerable location, to thwart any anti-social activities and to assist the law enforcing agencies in apprehending any such culprits.
The association stated that with festivals like Durga Puja, Diwali, Christmas, New Year etc just round the corner, anti-social elements might be lurking to carry out their illegal activities and victimise the public especially shoppers. NMBOA maintained that the association has received several complaints from shopkeepers about customers intentionally leaving behind empty handbags and later coming to claim that certain valuable articles and cash were inside the bag.
Such activity causes undue harassment to the business community. Therefore, the NMBOA appeals the public to desist from such modus operandi thus branding themselves into no lesser than those anti-social elements. NMBOA appealed for support and cooperation from all sections of the public and various government agencies to see that the market serves the needs of the public.
