In a complaint to the police, Pintu Meeda, a resident of Rajpura, has stated that he, along with his partner, closed the shop around 8 pm on Thursday. When they came to open it on Friday morning, they found the shutter broken and jewellery (gold and diamonds) worth lakhs missing from the almirah kept on the first floor of the shop.

The police have registered a case under Section 380 of the IPC at the Sector 17 police station. Meanwhile, CCTV footage obtained by the police revealed that three persons came in an auto-rickshaw and two of them entered the shop. One of the thieves was wearing a helmet while the other had covered his face with a piece of cloth. After stealing the ornaments, they fled the scene in the auto.
