Two unidentified men were booked for stealing 60 gramme gold jewellery from the house of a policeman's parents in Pune on Tuesday afternoon.

Kusum Jodge, 58, was alone in the house located in Chinchwad when two people approached her under the pretext of selling ghee, according to the police. The complainant woman lived with her husband, Lala Jodge, who was visiting a temple when the two arrived. Their son is a police officer in Thane.

Jodge invited the two in, bought ghee from them and paid for it. One of the two then told her that he is long-distance relative and handed her his phone. He, then, asked her to go to another room citing network issue in his phone.

As soon as she left the room, the two took the box from which Jodge had given them money and fled the house. The box, the complainant told the local police, had 60 gramme gold jewellery and ₹25,000 cash in it. A case in the matter was registered at the Nigdi police station under Sections 380 (theft in dwelling house) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

“They are both senior citizens and live by themselves. The complainant’s husband is a retired employee of a private company. We have noted the description of the two accused,” said police inspector (crime) Shankar Awtade of Nigdi police station.

The area where the robbery happened does not have CCTV coverage, according to the police.
