    Biswajit Das from Guwahati 985 Days ago

    Sir / Madam, I, Biswajit Das, a Central Govt. Public Sector employee, resident of Bye Lane no 4, Chimnoy Adhikari Path, Sankarpur, Gopinathnagar, Guwahati 781016, would invite your kind attention on the following: i. In the mentioned bye lane, due to defunct and almost no street light, some local young boys, who presume themselves to be some sort of Rowdy, take the advantage of the darkness and indulge in some unethical and immoral activities like drinking alcohol, consuming inappropriate substance, etc. ii. Many a times it is seen that small school / college going students, under the cover of darkness indulge in some objectionable activity with the opposite gender. Sir, whenever such are noticed by undersigned, it is always told to the miscreants to move away and not repeat the same. But, many a times, the people who happened to drink indulge in some verbal assault where they use very raw and slang language under the influence of alcohol. Due to such ill activities happening in the bye lane, in the cover of dark, women members of my family, comprising of mother, wife and sister in law, don’t feel safe to go out to the lane, even for evening walks, after its dark. The concern for their safety and security confines them not to go out in the bye lane alone during evenings. Sir, in the last occasion, when undersigned told the miscreants who were drinking in the bye lane sitting on their motorcycles , not to drink there, the miscreants comprising of 3 youths, tried to physically assault undersigned and threatened for consequences using slangs. Undersigned informed the matter to Fatasil Ambari Police station over the phone, which was attended by Sub – Inspector, Mr. Ali and a police patrol vehicle came to the area for inspection. However, in presence of the police personnel, it was told to the miscreants by undersigned not to repeat such acts in future and hence undersigned made no written complaint to the police authority as the miscreants confessed their mistake. Sir

    Your AP has wrongly interpreted the Clauses 31, 32 and 33 of building bye laws and is wrongly including Ground Floor Parking Areas for 30% exempted area.
