Thief cooks, sleeps, then flees with loot
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.
