Ludhiana, January 21

A Nepalese cook stole Rs 15 lakh from the house of a businessman living in Urban Estate, Dugri. The cook committed the theft when all family members were not present in the house.

On the complaint of the house owner, Kanwaljit Singh, the Dugri police yesterday registered a case against the cook, identified as Amar Nepali.

Kanwaljit Singh told the police that about two and half years ago he had employed Amar Nepali as a cook at their house. Amar Nepali had developed trust and literally became a member of the family.

The house owner said on January 17, he and his family had gone to the market and the cook was alone at home. When they returned in the evening, they were shocked to see the broken lock of the almirah and Rs 15 lakh kept in the almirah were missing.

The police registered a case yesterday.

Investigating officer ASI Jaswinder Singh said the CCTV footage of the house is being scanned to check if any friend of the cook also helped him in committing the crime. The phone number of the cook has been switched off since the day he left with the money.
