Ludhiana, May 19

Despite night curfew and strict vigil by the police, thieves continue to target houses and shops in rural areas of Ludhiana. In the latest incident, thieves committed a major theft at a house in Sidhwan Bet from where they decamped with gold and cash worth lakhs.

The owner of the house, Gagandeep Singh, said the incident took place on the intervening night of May 15 and 16.

“After having dinner, all family members had gone to sleep in the courtyard. The next morning when we went to a room, we were shocked to see a big hole in a wall. When we checked the almirah, all cash and gold ornaments were missing. Thieves took away Rs 3 lakh and 17 tolas of gold ornaments worth lakhs of rupees,” he said.

Gagandeep said a few days ago, he had borrowed money from a relative to pay some old debts which was stolen by the miscreants. He urged the police to nab them as soon as possible.

Residents of the village alleged that when night curfew was in place, how could thieves managed to commit such major thefts. They demanded strict police patrolling in their village to prevent such incidents in the future.

ASI Rajwinderpal Singh said a case of theft was registered against the thieves and serious efforts were being made to crack the case.
