Subject: Deteriorating Law and Order Situation

Dear Sir

Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to draw the attention of the concerned authorities responsible for maintaining law and order about the fast deteriorating law and order situation in the city.

The inhabitants of this city are going through a phase of panic due to fast deterioration of law and order. Newspapers and Television channels are again and again reporting crime stories like rape, arson, kidnapping, burglary and theft.

Our city is famous in the world as a tourist destination and as a business hub. Every month a business fair takes place in our city. Due to deterioration of law and order situation, the arrival of tourists have stopped and participants for business fairs are also withdrawing their participation.

The other day it was reported that a bomb was detected in front of a school. Thanks to the vigilant attention of a school student that it was detected and later deactivated by the bomb deactivation squad.

If such a situation continues, then what will be the fate of the inhabitants, no one knows. In this context, it is advisable that the concerned authorities should rope in paramilitary forces to tackle the deteriorating law and order situation.

It is a matter of concern that intelligence agencies failed to provide adequate and timely clues about various incidents which have taken place recently creating panic among people.

The influx of large number of people from the nearby areas have contributed to this situation as the nearby areas are economically backward. Economic backwardness and unemployment among youths are prompting them to take to the path of crime like theft and burglary as easy means for earning money.

While immediately taking hold of the situation, the government should take steps in allocating adequate funds for the development of the adjoining areas of the city. This will bring about a permanent solution to the problem.

Thanking You

Yours truly
XYZ
