The MRA Marg police are securing their own homes after the quarters of two police constables were burgled on Friday.

After three days, the police have no clue about the culprits who broke into the police quarters located on the premises of the MRA Marg police station.

Senior Police Inspector Sanjeev Kokil said the security for the police quarters has been increased to ensure that such incidents are not get repeated.

“We suspect the robbers had scaled the compound wall of the police quarters that faces the railway tracks. We have increased patrolling in the vicinity, the security of the police quarters and the entire locality,” added Kokil.

Kokil said they are still clueless about the identity of the burglars and would be able to comment only after the fingerprint analysis reports arrive.

“We had collected the fingerprints of the robbers from the spot and sent them for comparison with the records of criminals in the city,” said Kokil.

On Friday night the flats of two constables — Madhukar Kshirsagar of Pydhounie police station and Sanjiwani Wankhede of Cuffe Parade police station — were broken into and robbed.

After the incident, citizens of the area are feeling insecure.

“It is surprising that homes of policemen located on the police station premises were robbed. If the police cannot secure their own houses, how would they protect our homes,” said Sunil Shinde (32), a resident of MRA Marg.
