PHAGWARA: Unidentified thieves targeted the buses parked inside the bus stand and stole the batteries.
Harwinder Singh, the owner of Kalgidhar Bus Company and Paramjit Singh of Amar Doaba Company informed about the incident and said that during the night, two of their buses and one bus of the Amar Doaba bus company were parked as usual in the bus stand, but when they came this morning and saw that the batteries of the buses had been stolen. The loss of around Rs 60, 000/- was being estimated.

They said that the police were informed about the incident, but no police personnel arrived for about an hour. They said that they pay a parking fee for parking the bus inside the bus stand at night, but despite this, the management has not kept any watchman and the thieves' courage is so high that they ran away with the batteries.
The Victims said that the bus owners are already going through a period of recession and are making a living very hard, but with such thefts, they are suffering more financial loss. They demanded that the safety of the buses parked inside the bus stand should be ensured.
