In another shocking incident in Mumbai, housing society security was once again exploited when a man posing as a gas agency executive robbed a senior citizen. This incident took place when the victim was alone in his third – floor apartment and the imposter with the excuse of collecting data for a survey came into the house. He showed the elderly person a sample survey form to win his confidence. First he pretended to note down data and within no time flashed a knife and tied the victim. By god’s grace, he only robbed the helpless senior citizen and did not injure him in any way. He fled with jewelry and the housing society security person have no clue about who he was or what he looked like.
Like several housing societies in Mumbai, this one too does not have CCTV cameras. Hence, no data or information about the visitor has been captured. An easy solution to such problems is – using housing society security apps like the ADDA Gatekeeper Android App. All a security guard has to do is note down telephone numbers of visitors and the camera functionality allows capturing images. With the help of such a simple and user – friendly app, today the Police authorities would have had a face to catch hold of.
In the past too, senior citizens have been targeted by such miscreants on numerable occasions. Download the FREE ADDA Gatekeeper Android App and keep your elderly parents and other senior citizens safe.
