Kolkata: A thief broke into the house of a widow at Naren­dra­pur in Kolkata’s south­ern fringe, cooked and had a meal, slept on the bed, ex­changed a bulb in the widow’s bed­room, and fled with Rs 48,000 and some gold jew­ellery.

She­fali Sar­dar said, “When I re­turned home, the kitchen was un­tidy and some­one had cooked some rice and potato fries and eaten them off and an un­washed plate was ly­ing in the sink.”

“Not only was my bed a mess with some­one hav­ing slept on it, the almi­rah had been bro­ken open and ran­sacked. All the cash and some gold jew­ellery were gone. I also re­alised that the low-power bulb in my bed­room had been re­placed with a pow­er­ful one from another room,” she added. Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the widow’s com­plaint.
