Subject: Security of old people living alone
Through the column of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to bring to the public’s notice the unsafe environment in which our elderly population struggles daily.
It has been seen that the incidents of molestation and rape against elderly women have risen in the past few years. The elderly are often killed, robbers making away with their goods and money after hacking them to death. Special steps need to be taken to protect our elderly who live alone and do not have company at home especially during the day hours. Police vans need to be on constant rounds, citizen squads can be formed, the elderly need to be checked on regularly. Above all, we need to learn true respect for old people.
I hope that the police force will take appropriate actions to curtail the problem.
Thanking you in anticipation.
