NAVI MUM­BAI: The NRI po­lice have reg­is­tered a case af­ter some uniden­ti­fied peo­ple broke into a flat at Sea­woods and stole gold and sil­ver jew­ellery worth Rs3.09 lakh from it on Fri­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the com­plainant Ab­hishek Ku­mar, 33, a res­i­dent of Jai Gu­rudev CHS, went out with his fam­ily for some work around 9am. They reached home around 5pm and saw that the house had been bro­ken into.

“The cul­prits en­tered the flat by break­ing the lock at the main en­trance. They found the gold and sil­ver jew­ellery in­side a cup­board and ran away with those. The other res­i­dents of the build­ing did not hear any noise or see any­one sus­pi­cious,” said one po­lice of­fi­cer from NRI po­lice sta­tion.

“We have reg­is­tered one case un­der sec­tions 454, 457 and 380 of the In­dian Pe­nal Code (IPC). We are now in­ter­ro­gat­ing some peo­ple based on sus­pi­cion, but no ar­rest has been made so far,” he added.

“In view of the in­creas­ing cases of bur­glar­ies, we are con­duct­ing meet­ings with the res­i­dents ev­ery Sun­day. Sev­eral meet­ing have al­ready been con­ducted in Vashi, Kopar Khairane, Nerul, San­pada and Ra­bale so far,” said a crime branch of­fi­cial.

“Res­i­dents do not show in­ter­est in aware­ness drives con­ducted by the po­lice against house break- i ns and other crimes. They hardly fol­low the pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sures men­tioned in the no­tices put up by cops in var­i­ous parts of the city. There will be a con­sid­er­able de­cline in bur­glary cases if they even read and fol­low the safety mea­sures men­tioned in such no­tices,” he added.
