``There are three kinds of areas that are prone to robberies in Delhi,'' an officer at the Lajpat Nagar Police Station told Express Newsline. ``Places like Neeti Bagh and Gulmohar Park in South Delhi where the well-off live; places that are well-connected to the Ring Road as it is easy for the robbers to get away with the loot; And finally, places that are not well-lit.''
Commenting on the situation in northwest Delhi, DCP (north-west) Satyendra Garg says: ``It is a border district and therefore more prone to robberies. Investigations have revealed that most of these robberies have been committed either by novices or by gangs based in Haryana. Many of the robbers are dhobis or drivers: They are not starving, but think they will make a quick buck by robbing people.''
Statistics available at PHQ reveal that robberies have been the largest contributor to the 12 per cent increase in crime since the beginning of this year as compared to the whole of last year: 364 cases of robbery were reported till June 30.
While 46 cases were registered in June, at least 31 were registered during this months till yesterday.
