District police, Samba has managed to recover all the 18.8 tola (0.19 kg) gold ornaments, which was reportedly stolen from the residence of Rajinder Kumar, an inhabitant of Ramgarh on Friday.
The gold was found in a polythene bag in the cattle pond from the house of Kumar, who lodged a complaint with the district police. Israr Khan, SSP, Samba said he himself had supervised this case as rumours regarding the presence of thieves' gang were on in this district and in its adjoining regions.
Khan said his assumption of the theft to be an insider's misdeed, has proved right. Further questioning would reveal the motive of this theft, he added.
The sleuth further said besides this one, another incident of theft had taken place in the past two months at Rakhambtali, where, leaving the artificial jewelries, only a pair of gold earrings had been stolen.
The police are eyeing to grill the complainant's daughter, who has already admitted in the hospital that she had kept the main entrance open at night, on the day of the incident.
Police is also looking into the call records of the family to ascertain the truth.
Khan said incidents of petty thefts have been reported from the small temples and shops in the last six months. Cops believe that drug addicts, in dire need of buying intoxicants are causing such crimes.
District police, Samba has managed to recover all the gold ornaments18.8 tolas which are reportedly stolen from the house of one Rajinder Kumar resident of Ramgarh and on which case was registered.
The gold was today found in a polythene bag in the cattle pond from the house of complainant Rajinder Kumar. Pertinent to mention here that immediately after this theft, all the residents of village Israr Khan SSP Samba said that he had personally supervised this case as there are lot of rumors going on this district and adjoining districts regarding the presence of gang of thieves from outside. This fear psychosis had caused restlessness in the public who were looking for any smaller opportunity to vent their feelings and put pressure on Police. After thorough questioning, SSP Samba was of the opinion that said theft was an insider's job and that has proved right. Now further questioning will reveal the motive behind this so called theft which infact was just an insider's job.
SSP Samba further disclosed that besides this theft just one more small theft had taken place in past 02 months at Rakhambtali, Samba which again looks like a hoax as no one could steal only gold ear rings in the pitch darkness and leave the artificial ornaments behind. Police is concentrating on the family and wants to grill the daughter who was sleeping in the said room and had also kept the main door open in the night for facilitating the thiefts, if ever it has taken place. The girl has herself admitted in the hospital and therefore it is not possible for Police to make inroads in the said investigation for the time being. Police is also looking the call records of the family to ascertain the truth.
SSP Samba said that only some petty thefts of Rs. 100, Rs. 70, Rs. 110, 1 Kg of Ghee and 1 Cigrette Packet have been reportedly stolen from the small temples and a shop in the last 06 months which clearly established that it is the handiwork of the drug addicts who need petty money for buying the intoxicants.
