JORHAT, Feb 14 - The burglary spree in Jorhat town seems to be still on, as thieves on Tuesday night robbed a hardware shop at Fasi Ali locality and decamped with Rs 6,000 in cash.

It may be mentioned here that on the night of January 29, five shops alongside the Baghmibar Nilomani Phukan Road (popularly known as Fish Market Road) were burgled.

On the night of January 22, nine shops were burgled in two different areas (Bongalpukhuri and Jail Road) of the town. In the first half of January, seven shops were burgled in Tarajan locality.

A police source said that night patrolling by policemen has been intensified in recent times, but as most of the streetlights in the town are not functioning and shopkeepers mostly keep the lights in front of their shops switched off, criminals are able to commit theft.

The source said that eight youths have been arrested in the past fortnight on charges of committing theft in shops.

It may be mentioned here that on January 29, State Assembly Speaker and Jorhat MLA Hitendra Nath Goswami had launched �Project Third Eye� at the Jorhat Police Station under which 32 CCTV cameras were installed in several prominent places of the town.
