Even as the police are extra vigilant due to Covid restrictions and night curfew imposed in the city, a number of thefts and burglaries were reported in the last 24 hours.

Hukam Chand, the owner of a pharmacy in Manimajra, reported 17 lakh stolen from a bag he had kept under his bed. He said that he had last checked on the money on December 22 and when he checked again on Wednesday, he found the cash missing. However, the thief had left 2 lakh in the bag. While no arrests have been made yet, officials said there was no sign of breaking and entering and it is likely that someone inside the house committed the theft. Police are scanning CCTV footage to identify the accused.

A resident of Sector 35-B, BBMB Colony, alleged that a boy from the same neighbourhood had stolen gold jewellery from his cupboard. The complainant, Manpreet Singh, said the theft was committed by Mahesh Negi alias Lala. Police are verifying the matter before arresting Lala.
