Three-month blackout: terrified Northdale residents sitting ducks

2013-10-28 00:00

MORE than three months without street lights have left residents in the lower end of Northdale sitting ducks for criminals. In the past month people have been held up and had their wages, cellphones and shopping parcels stolen. Residents say that cars get broken into on a nightly basis and recently there has been an increase in the number of housebreakings.

She said the areas affected included Bangalore Road, Dhera Dun Circle and Arunagiri Circle. “This area is … completely dark because there is no reflective lighting from the other streets. There are many paths and lanes leading out of this area and the cemetery itself allows for quick and easy escape routes for the criminals,” Ahmed said.
