  1. This road is becoming unsafe lately, a big part of the fence has been stolen and so thugs can gain access. They know the police patrol timings and take advantage to conduct their crimes. Drivers should stay vigilant especially late night. The police should intensify their patrols

    Many condolences to the families of the lost souls. RIP
