Surat: Traders should use Textile Suraksha Setu App to avoid economic crimes: Police Commissioner Ajay Kumar Tomar

An interactive meeting on ‘Economic Offenses’ was organized by South Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry between Police Department and traders of South Gujarat including Surat at Samridhi, Nanpura. Surat city police commissioner Ajay Kumar Tomar was present as the chief guest and addressed the businessmen associated with the industry.

Industries thrive only in areas where there is law and order

Chamber of Commerce President Himanshu Bodawala said, the development of any city depends on its industrial peace. Industries thrive only in those areas where law and order issues are minimal. Industrial peace is at its peak in Surat but it is because of police control over crime. So how can economic crime be controlled and what should the businessmen associated with the industry do? We will try to move forward in this direction on how to make Surat more safe and secure by getting information from its police department.

Ready to register police complaint in cases of chitting, fraud and betrayal

Surat city police commissioner Ajay Kumar Tomar said that the traders of Surat give goods very easily to the traders of other states. The criminals who are well aware of this matter are colluding with the traders of Surat. There are mainly three types of economic offenses found in Surat, Cheating, Fraud and Betrayal. Criminals plan to cheat from the very beginning of the business. On the other hand, after gaining the trust of the merchant and buying goods on credit from him, the criminal commits betrayal. Police is ready to register complaints in all these three cases, but there is a need to be careful about trust in business. Whether payment will come or not, this needs to be considered in advance.

Co-operation of police and businessmen is necessary to prevent economic crimes

He further said that both the police and the traders will have to work together to stop economic crimes. For this, he asked the traders to use the Textile Security Setu App. On the other hand, in transactions worth lakhs of rupees, traders apply to the police to withdraw money and then the police officers are trying to stop the untoward happening. He also asked the traders to be vigilant to prevent land grabbing offences. If you get something for free, you are a product for it. Therefore, he advised to use social media wisely.

Contact police officers without any fear

He further said that this is your police and not anyone else’s. So you can approach the police officers without any fear. He suggested that all the industrial associations under the aegis of Chamber of Commerce should run a campaign for awareness about the Textile Suraksha Setu App for maximum use by the traders.

Merchants fall prey to the greed of percentage in business

Surat Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic and Crime) Sharad Singhal said, the Textile Suraksha Setu application has been created by Surat City Police to help the textile traders. He gave detailed information about the Textile Safety Setu with the presentation. He appealed to the industrialists and traders to use the Textile Suraksha Setu App of the police. So that the traders can be saved from the criminals who cheat. Sometimes traders get lured by percentage in business and fall prey to fraudsters.

Criminals commit crimes by making video calls and trapping people in honey trap

Economic offenders lure investors into MLM schemes and other schemes, and several crimes involving small traders in the textile and diamond industries have been reported. Criminals commit crimes by sending messages and even making video calls to trap people in honey traps. That’s why he advised not to pick up video calls from unknown numbers. He appealed to businessmen to be careful about reporting the crime of hacking Facebook accounts. He said that through the cyber cell of Surat Police, he had gone to other states and arrested criminals even in adverse situations.
