Ludhiana, February 20

Thieves targeted the petrol pump of a kin of Lok Insaf Party (LIP) MLA at Nurpur Bet and decamped with cash.

The Ladhowal police reached the spot and started a probe.

Ladhowal Station House Officer Baljit Singh said after the petrol pump was closed last night, thieves entered the main office of the pump by creating a opening in the wall.

Despite closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras were installed at the pump, thieves could not be captured in the cameras as they entered from the rear side of the petrol pump.

After entering the main office, they broke open the cash box and took the money with them.

Sources said the police were also ascertaining the role of petrol pump employees and their mobile phone details were also being checked.

Fingerprint experts and a dog squad team had also reached the pump to assist the police in investigation.
