What happens when the headgear of the parent body of the country's ruling party go missing? It is bound to send men in khaki into a tizzy.
The Indore police are on the hunt for 'black caps' used by the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) — a consignment of which was stolen from its office 'Archana' on Monday. The police was quick to respond and lodge a case on Tuesday.
Police said that unidentified miscreants stole a parcel of RSS caps worth Rs 5,400 from the RSS office. Sadar Bazar police have registered a case of theft and started investigation.
"We will retrieve the CCTV footage of the office and soon the accused will be arrested," said investigating officer Narayan Singh.
Singh further said that the incident took place on Tuesday afternoon when four parcels of caps and clothes came to the Indore office from Ujjain.
"As per office-bearers of the RSS, an unidentified person came inside the office premises and took away one of the parcel carrying caps," said Singh.
The police are yet to get the CCTV footage. "The CCTV footage is not with us and was seen only by the RSS office bearers," said the investigating officer.
Nor has the police been able to take statements of the RSS office-bearers. "They (RSS men) decided that they will talk to the senior office bearers first and then talk to the police," said Singh.
When contacted, Lakshman Navathe, RSS Indore Vibhag Sanghchalak said that he is not aware about the incident as he is in Delhi for some work. Other office-bearers of the RSS Indore did not respond to calls despite repeated attempts.
