NAVI MUM­BAI: A house in Nerul was bro­ken into by uniden­ti­fied peo­ple and cash and gold jewellery worth Rs5 lakh were stolen on Fri­day. The Nerul po­lice have reg­is­tered a case.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, com­plainant Anil Dhanaji Bhoir, 43, had gone out for shop­ping with his fam­ily around 1.30pm and re­turned within two hours only to find that the house had been bro­ken into.

“The cul­prits en­tered the house by break­ing the lock at the main en­trance. They stole cash and gold jewellery from a cup­board and fled. The fam­ily reg­is­tered an FIR,” said Vikram Tarkar, sub-in­spec­tor from Nerul po­lice sta­tion.

Tarkar said there was no se­cu­rity guard in the build­ing. The premises does not have CCTV cam­eras.”

“We are in­ter­ro­gat­ing some peo­ple based on sus­pi­cion but have not made any ar­rest ow­ing been to lack of ev­i­dence,” said an­other po­lice of­fi­cer.

“The crim­i­nals suc­ceed be­cause peo­ple do not use strong locks on their doors. The win­dows, which are not prop­erly se­cured, pro­vide easy ac­cess. We re­quest res­i­dents to take pre­ven­tive mea­sures for en­sur­ing safety of their homes and valu­ables,” said Suresh Men­gade, deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (spe­cial branch).

“Res­i­dents should keep their jewellery and other valu­ables in bank lock­ers in­stead of keep­ing at home. Guards should be ap­pointed only from au­tho­rised agen­cies,” he said.
