“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.
