The NRI police have registered a case against an unidentified woman who stole a gold chain worth ₹8,000 from a six-year-old girl at a shopping mall in Nerul.
According to the police, Shridhar Nair, 37, a resident of sector 16 in Kopar Khairane, had been to the mall with his wife and their daughter on Sunday evening.
The couple was waiting at the cash counter to pay their bills, while Nair’s daughter was standing a few metres behind them.
“That was when the woman approached the girl and told her that she was her mother’s friend. She then told the girl that it’s not good to wear a gold chain in a mall. She removed the chain from her neck and said she would give it to her mother,” said Bhushan Kapadnis, sub-inspector of NRI police station.
“The girl believed the woman who took only four minutes to take the chain off and walked away from the spot. The value of the chain would be around ₹8,000,” he added. The couple later learnt about the incident from the girl and approached the police.
“We have procured the CCTV footage showing the woman going out of the shopping mall. We are now searching for her,” another officer said.
