$5,400 STOLEN FROM IRAQI MAN IN JHARSA
An Iraqi national filed a complaint with the police, alleging that a hotel employee had stolen USD 5,400 from his luggage when he was staying at the hotel in Jharsa village in Sector 39, the police said. According to the police, the victim was in the city to accompany his brother-in-law, who has been undergoing treatment for a medical ailment in a private hospital.
The police said the incident took place in October but the victim did not report the incident at the time because he received an assurance from the hotel that the management would find the accused staffer.
In the FIR filed on Thursday at Sadar police station, the victim, Abdul Sattar, a resident of Kirkuk, Iraq, said that he and his brother-in-law had rented a room at the hotel on October 31.
“After entering the room, I put my trousers on a table. The following morning, USD 5,400 were missing from the pocket of my trousers. A hotel staffer had come to the room when I was asleep and my brother-in-law was praying. The accused man went on the run after the incident,” the victim stated in the police complaint.
“We are going to verify the allegations after going through the closed circuit television footage of the hotel on the day of the incident,” ASI Ajit (who goes by his first name only) said.
A case was registered against the accused man under Section 380 of the IPC at Sadar police station, the police said.
