In a letter to the Thane police commissioner on May 4, TMT manager Sudhir Raut requested the presence of police personnel at bus stops in Thane, which have become hubs for junkies and anti-social elements. Giving an example, Raut mentioned that one of the bus stops in Dongripada area has been encroached upon by junkies and alcoholics. Raut said TMT committee member Anil Bhor brought the issue to the fore. “Women’s safety is our priority. We have written to the police commissioner to increase police presence and take strict action against anyone found lurking near the bus stop in a suspicious manner,” said a transport officer.
