VIJAYAWADA: In view of the increase in cases of robbery in the city, the city police have advised house owners to collect personal details apart from getting police clearance of their prospective tenants before letting out their houses.

According to them, a number of theft cases registered in the police station involving the people from other regions have increased and it has been found that house owners have no information about their tenants.

“The landlords are not even enquiring about the background of their tenants while letting out their houses and due to this, the crime rate has increased in recent times. House owners should collect basic details along with their ID proofs and contact numbers and, if possible, check their antecedents with police help,” said commissioner of police, AB Venkateswara Rao, addressing a here on Sunday.

The CP said many people from various regions are migrating to Vijayawada especially in search of work as daily labourers and house owners should be wary of them. “It is mainly to make Vijayawada a safe city, if the police are made aware of who is staying where and what they do for a living. It will greatly help in maintaining law and order and also control crime rate,” he added.
