GURGAON: A broken boundary wall at Sector 46 has raised concerns about residents’ safety and security in the area. They said several iron grille thefts have been reported from the sector as the damaged boundary wall gives miscreants easy access to enter and roam freely in the area. According to residents, Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) had constructed the outer boundary wall in 2016. But even after the MCG takeover, the civic body has failed to carry out regular maintenance. Various commercial activities, including PGs, guesthouses and nursing homes have also opened in the area, because of which outsiders frequently enter the sector, residents say. Despite repeated requests to repair the boundary wall at the CM Window helpline and to MCG officials, the problem has not been resolved, they told TOI. RWA vice president Balbir Singh Lohchab said that the grilles and boundary wall from Bakhtawar Chowk to women’s police station and to Indira Chowk is damaged at multiple locations. “Due to the broken wall, people often take shortcuts to the commercial entity but it compromises the safety of others. Miscreants have stolen most of the iron grilles near the boundary wall as well, some of which were recovered by police after complaints,” he said. Last year, MCG sanctioned Rs 34 lakh for the construction and repair of the outer boundary wall in Sector 46. “While the tendering process has already been completed, the work order is yet to be issued. We have asked MCG to take action against those who are damaging iron grilles and boundary walls as it is jeopardising the safety of residents, but to no avail,” RWA president Raj Kumar Yadav. A senior MCG official said on Sunday that an estimate was prepared for the construction of the boundary wall. “But it is still under observation to ascertain if the construction comes under the scope of MCG or not. Only basic services in HSVP sectors have been handed over to us to maintain it, while security does not come under the purview of MCG,” the official said.
