Burglars break into house, loot valuables worth Rs 3.5L
Burglars broke inside a house at Jadavpur on Thursday night and looted valuables worth Rs 3.5 lakh.
Police informed the residents of P21 of Poddar Nagar under the jurisdiction of Jadavpur police station.
The valuables include cash, gold jewelleries and expensive mobile phone.
The burglars cut the window grill and entered there. The owner of the house, a trader, lodged a complaint with Jadavpur police station alleging that the burglars broke into his house and decamped with Rs 3.5 lakh on Thursday night.
But in his complaint, he also alleged that there may be somebody known to his family who may have masterminded this whole conspiracy.
He alleged that, the burglars had a pretty well idea about his house.
They even broke the ‘master lock’ of his almirah and looted the cash.
The house owner, his wife and son was then sleeping downstairs when the incident happened.
“We have taken his complaint. A team of investigators reached his house to probe the matter. It seemed that someone familiar to the family could have done this. The burglars had a pretty good idea about the position of all the rooms and furniture there,” said the investigating officer.
However, the trader had earlier lodged a complaint, seeking police protection, with the same police station alleging some people earlier barged into his house to loot, but could not do anything as they woke up from sleep.
The investigator learnt that burglars were four in number. They had machineries to cut the iron grill without creating much noise.
“They broke the master lock of the almirah from the outside. The locker inside the almirah was also broken to loot cash and jewelleries,” the investigating officer said.
The police are interrogating the security guards, local shopkeepers and maid servants.
“There were some incidents of burglaries in this locality. We are keeping tabs on situation,” the investigating officer added.
