Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Bri­gadier-Gen­eral Si­tiveni Qil­iho yes­ter­day said he could not com­ment on a CCTV footage of an al­leged bur­glary posted on so­cial me­dia be­cause he had not seen it. Busi­ness­man Im­dad Ali claimed he had to turn to so­cial me­dia to gain help from the pub­lic con­cern­ing the thefts after he had re­ported the al­leged bur­glary to Po­lice. The 62-year-old busi­ness­man posted the CCTV footage on his

Face­book page show­ing peo­ple who he claimed were in­volved in a rob­bery at his home on July 27. He is re­quest­ing the pub­lic and Po­lice to iden­tify the peo­ple on the footage. “Three times some peo­ple tres­passed into my prop­erty and stole some items from my prop­erty,” Mr Ali said.

“After July 27, I re­ported the mat­ter at the Nabua Po­lice Station but no one has been ar­rested yet. “After the sec­ond and third sim­i­lar in­ci­dences, I did not re­port the mat­ter to the Po­lice.”

Mr Ali said after first in­ci­dent when Po­lice al­legedly failed to take any ac­tion, he lost hope and thought of not re­port­ing the mat­ter at all. “The three in­ci­dents hap­pened be­tween July and Septem­ber.

“In the first in­ci­dent there were about three peo­ple in­volved in the theft. Some taxi driv­ers told me the res­i­dence of one of the rob­bers. “$1500 worth of items has been stolen from my res­i­dence,” he said. “I am re­ally con­cerned about the safety of my fam­ily mem­bers be­cause they can hurt my fam­ily mem­bers. Dur­ing the third in­ci­dent, I was over­seas. “Dur­ing the third theft, my grand­daugh­ter saw some­one jump­ing over the gate and even our neigh­bours have wit­nessed it. “When my neigh­bours tried to catch the rob­ber, he started to throw stones at them and ran away.” “There are about seven to eight CCVT cam­eras in­stalled out­side my house.

“I want Po­lice to look into this mat­ter se­ri­ously,” he said.
