This post is about theft in the house of Rajya Sabha official. The area MP and MLA are just not taking care of the residents of their area.
The East district of Delhi is becoming a crime prone area. There have been number of cases of burglary in this area and the modus operandi of all the theft have been more or less the same.
Indraprastha Extension area of East Delhi is the most thickly populated are which comprises of more than 120 apartments and is one of the posh area. This area of East Delhi is have the population consisting of elite people who are from all walks of life; businessmen, government employee, artists, actors, directors, journalists, etc. The area has number of entry and exit point which are unmanned and this is the reason why the gangs are getting easy entry to the hard earned valuables of the residents. No matter every apartment is having security arrangements but still the thieves are having an easy entry in the apartments.
Pradeep Chaturvedi is a joint director in Rajya Sabha Secretariat who is residing in flat no 234 of Sita Ram apartments of this area. It was on 12th October that he left for pilgrimage to Sridhi along with his family; wife Nidhi Chaturvedi (assistant director, Rajya Sabha Secretariat), son, and mother. As usual the keys of the house were left with his servant Ram Kumar. In the morning of 13th October, Ram Kumar came to the flat to get it cleaned with the help of the maid servant. He opened the lock from outside, but was surprised that the door of the house was latched from inside. He being puzzled called Pradeep and who in return informed his younger brother Ajit Chaturvedi to see as to what was the problem.

|Beds turned upside down|
No corner was left untouched
Ajit called the police and in their presence entry was made in the house. The house was ransacked, almirah were broken open and the beds were turned upside down. The locker of the master bedroom was broken and this was the place which had the jewellery of the lady of the house which was taken away by the thieves. The thieves took away 10 tolas of gold jewellery, artificial jewellery worth of Rs. 90,000, US$ 1,000 and cash Rs. 20,000 amounting to be a total of Rs. 5 lakhs.

The similarity in all the thefts is that burglary is conducted on the very night of the day when the residents have their house on a journey. The thieves have taken the currency of the bigger denomination which can be easily stuffed in the pockets and they can walk empty handed outside the apartments. The other item which is centered in these burglaries is gold and ornaments, which are again easy to carry. One major reason is that the new SHO has just joined office and since the day of his joining the incidents of theft has increased. On the other hand SHO started night patrolling and suddenly the incidents have come under control, which raises a question on the involvement of the authorities in relation to crime incidents.
The Member of Parliament of the area Sandeep Dixit is the son of the Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dixit, who was contact to by Pradeep Chaturvedi regarding the series of theft episodes, but in vain. The MP is least bothered to pay heed to the problems of the residents of the area which happens to his vote bank. It is the moral responsibility of the MP to listen to the residents of his voting constituency but Sandeep Dixit does not have time for these pity things and is busy with is mother in beautifying Delhi with day to day announcement of new scheme for the benefits of the Delhites but without listening to their grievances. More or less all the major channels and the newspapers have carried the news of this burglary but till 20th October the MP or the MLA has not got time to visit the area or issues statement on the situation.
According to the residents of the area these serial thefts can be the reason of the adjoining boarder area which is an escape exit for the thieves to the other state. The boarder area is always prone to activities of crime and the police should think about this seriously.
