Amritsar, February 22
In order to get his tenant evicted from his property, an owner burgled valuables from the former’s shop by breaking the wall.
The police have booked Harbhajan Singh of Chanan Singh colony and his four accomplices for criminal trespass and theft.
Complainant Rajinder Singh, alias Raju, alleged that around 8 pm on February 20, he closed his shop and went home. He said around one-a-and-half-hour later, he received a call from Sajan that somebody was ransacking his shop.
Raju said he immediately informed the police and reached at his shop. As I opened the shutter, I found the counter and CCTV cameras installed in the shop missing, he said.
The complainant alleged that Harbhajan broke the wall and decamped with valuables and other goods from the shop. He said the owner also set his shop on fire to mislead the police.
According to police, Harbhajan has shops in Tahli Wala chowk area and he was allegedly pressurising his tenants for vacating the same. Rajinder had taken a shop on rent around 15 years ago. The court had granted a stay on vacating the shop, said the police.
On the basis of CCTV footage, a case under Sections 380, 457, 447, 511, 506 and 34 of the IPC has been registered against the accused.
