The locked house of Samson's father at the coastal town of Vizhinjam near in Thiruvananthapuram was found burgled on Friday. Family members said the stolen items included some of the school-time trophies of the U-19 player, they said.

Samson's parents are now living in another house and the player is out of state for IPL practice session. Some of his trophies and shields, kept in the main hall of the house, were taken away by thieves while a few others had been damaged, said police.

Police dismissed the possibility of souvenir hunters being behind the burglary since the copper and brass portions the shields were carved out leaving the wooden base behind.
