After series of incidents of snatching and cases of molestation that took place in a short span in Salt Lake - the township was once again under attack on Monday.

Goons robbed a guest house booked for a marriage at AE block. GP Satsangi, a resident of BL Block, had booked the guest house for his son’s marriage.

According to the resident’s complaint, clothes and jewellery worth Rs. 10 lakh were stolen from the guest house. The police have arrested Dipak Anthony, the caretaker of the guest house.

Notably four incidents of snatching and one incident of snatching cum molestation took place at Salt Lake within 24 hours one week ago.

Incidents of snatching and theft in Salt Lake have always been a major headache for the police. Police sources said it is still not clear why the resident who had hired the guest house had kept clothes and jewellery in spite of knowing that no one of the family would stay there.
