APMC: Uniden­ti­fied ac­cused broke the glass win­dow­pane of a car and stole Rs7 lakh from the ve­hi­cle at APMC on Fri­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the com­plainant, At­maram Kale, 45, a busi­ness­man from Thane, had parked his car in front of the Turbhe cre­ma­to­rium be­fore head­ing to a shop in the vicin­ity around 7am.

“He no­ticed the theft when he re­turned two hours later, but came to us af­ter one-and-a-half hours. So, there was no point in con­duct­ing a naka­bandi,” said Maya More, se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of APMC po­lice sta­tion. “We are now in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case to trace the cul­prits,” said More.

The po­lice are go­ing through the CCTV cam­era footage in the vicin­ity to look for clues.

Deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (crime) Suresh Mengde said, “We have de­tected many car break-in cases, but res­i­dents should not take a chance. They should carry their valu­ables along with them, even if they are away for a few min­utes.”
