Dear All,

                       MUGGING AND SAFETY ON THE ROADS                                 


Of late, we have been getting the reports of renewal of incidents of Bangaloreans travelling in cars getting mugged by a motorcycle based gang in areas around Outer Ring Road. The targeted areas are
 
a)     Iblur Circle – Sarjapur road,
b)    Bellandur Circle – Yamalur road on Bellandur Tank bed
c)     Sarjapur road – Hosur road via Jail road
d)    Sarjapur road – Hosur road via Haralur
e)     Marathahalli and surroundings
 
The Modus Operandi
 
a)     The gang generally has a black motorcycle with a driver and a pillion. Usually they the target the car with single person inside.
b)    They continuously honk from behind or forcibly tap on the window to stop the car saying that you have hit their bike.
c)     As soon as you stop the car and open the door, they will enter and sit inside and tell you that you have hit their bike/injured a person in the accident and have to pay compensation.
d)    They will snatch your mobile not allowing you to call police.
e)     They will ask you to give them the money. If you don’t have, they force you to draw from nearby ATM.  
f)     The members of the gang speak loudly in Kannada and are known to take only money or gold.
 
Guidelines to Employees
 
a)     Always roll up windows and lock the doors of your car from inside when driving alone. We have seen many of us don’t do it making it easy for anyone to just open and enter the car.
b)    Don’t panic when you hear continuous honking from behind.
c)     If you have to stop the car, call police or ORRCA (Outer Ring Road Companies Association) Helpline immediately and try and make sure that you stop in a place which is not isolated.
d)    Don’t get down from the car and allow any stranger to get in.
e)     In the event of them getting into your car, get out immediately as you will be in public place. Raise your voice and get the people around.
f)     Don’t lose your temper. Be cool and handle the situation.
g)    If possible, take their photograph and vehicle number plate in your cell phone.
h)     If pushed into a situation, tell them that you can arrange money from your friend and take them to place, where people known to you are available.
i)      Keep the “Pepper spray” ready as a defence and use it properly and carefully only if they try to threaten you or attack you. Pepper spray is available in outlets of More and Health & Glow.
j)      Do not get panicky and give away all your valuables at the first instance.
k)     Remember that their operation is a planned one and even they are equally scared but pretend to be courageous.  
l)      If the situation aggravates, don’t risk your life. There is no need to be a hero! Your safety is important.
 
The Police have intensified patrolling in these areas and have provided the following numbers to be called if there is any incident. We have checked and confirmed these numbers.
 
            Cheetah Mobile Patrol 1 -  9902660986
            Cheetah Mobile Patrol 2 -  9980834703
            HAL Police station  -    9480801616 /080-22942542
 
 


Please save these numbers in your cell phone and call them if you need help.

Back up system state

Ntbackup.exe provides simple and advanced options for backing up Active Directory components. When you back up system state, you can choose to include or exclude system-protected boot files. System-protected boot files are not used for installations from restored backup media. When the backup file that you create is to be used for additional domain controller installations, you can clear the advanced option to back up system-protected files. Clearing this option decreases the size of the .bkf file, as well as the time required to back up, restore, and copy the system state files.

Use these procedures to back up the system state only. These procedures do not back up the system disk or any other data on the domain controller except for the system-protected files.

Use the first procedure, "To back up system state including system-protected files," for routine system state backup. Use the second procedure, "To back up system state excluding system-protected files," if you want to create a smaller backup that is effective for installing domain controllers from restored backup media.

Note

To back up system state, you must log on locally to the domain controller, or Remote Desktop must be enabled on the remote domain controller so that you can connect remotely.

Administrative credentials

  • To perform the following two procedures, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group or a member of the Backup Operators group.

To back up system state including system-protected files

  1. To start the Windows Server 2003 backup utility, click Start, click Run, type ntbackup, and then click ok

 This procedure provides steps for backing up in Wizard Mode. By default, the Always Start in Wizard Mode check box is selected in the Backup or Restore Wizard. If the Welcome to the Backup Utility Advanced Mode page appears, click Wizard Mode to open the Backup or Restore Wizard.

  1. On the Welcome to the Backup or Restore Wizard page, click Next.
  2. Select Back up files and settings, and then click Next.
  3. Select Let me choose what to back up, and then click Next.
  4. In the Items to Back Up window, double-click My Computer.
  5. In the expanded list below My Computer, check System State, and then click Next.
  6. Select a location to store the backup:
    • If you are backing up to a file, type the path and file name for the backup (.bkf) file (or click Browse to find a folder or file).
    • If you are backing up to a tape unit, choose the tape that you want to use.

Note

You should not store the backup on the local hard drive. Instead, store it in a location, such as a tape drive, away from the computer that you are backing up.

  1. Type a name for this backup according to the recommendations in Backing Up Active Directory Components, and then click Next.
  2. On the last page of the wizard, click Advanced.
  3. Do not change the default options for Type of Backup. Normal should be selected, and the check box for Backup migrated remote storage data should remain cleared. Click Next.  
  4. Select Verify data after backup, and then click Next.
  5. In the Backup Options dialog box, select a backup option, and then click Next.
  6. If you are replacing the existing backups, select the option to allow only the owner and administrator access to the backup data and to any backups that are appended to this medium, and then click Next.
  7. In the When to back up box, select the appropriate option for your needs, and then click Next.
  8. If you are satisfied with all of the options that are selected, click Finish to perform the backup operation according to your selected schedule.

Note

The system state can also be backed up by using Ntbackup from a command line with appropriate parameters. For more information, at a command prompt type ntbackup /?.

The following procedure produces a smaller .bkf file that does not include system boot files. By using this procedure, you can reduce the time that is required to perform the backup and subsequent restore, as well as the amount of disk space that is required. This method is recommended when the restored backup is to be used for installing additional domain controllers.

To back up system state excluding system-protected files

  1. To start the Windows Server 2003 backup utility, click Start, click Run, type ntbackup, and then click OK.
  2. On the Welcome to the Backup or Restore Wizard page, click Advanced Mode, and then click the Backup tab.
  3. In the console tree, select the System State check box.
  4. In Backup media or file name, type a name for this backup according to the recommendations in Backing Up Active Directory Components.
  5. Click Start Backup, and then click Advanced.
  6. Clear the Automatically back up System Protected Files with the System State check box, and then click OK.
  7. Click Start Backup.
