Carjacking, The Next Crime Mode Says Nabua Resident

A Nabua resident is concerned that carjacking or robbing people inside their cars could be the next mode of crime.

This after he witnessed an unsuccessful attempt last week.

Jitesh Chandra, 39, was returning home last Thursday when he noticed the alleged incident taking place.

“It was a black SUV that exited Shalimar Street entering Grantham Road. The vehicle had not picked up speed when suddenly a man crossed the street. He took his time and even bent down to tie his shoelace.

“The driver slowed down and came to a standstill. As this happened, I saw three men who ran up to the vehicle trying to open its doors. I think the vehicle was locked and the driver sped away.

“I was shocked and at the same time amazed. The coordination and timing of the people were like watching a movie,” he said.

Mr Chandra was in the opposite lane, stuck in traffic.

He said this was just another level. The driver of the vehicle who wished to remain anonymous said he did not lodge a complaint with the Police because nothing was taken or damaged.

Police are encouraging members of the public to report any criminal activity.
