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.
