Satyendar’s house broken into, all rooms ransacked; FIR lodged
New Delhi: Thieves broke into Delhi home minister Satyendar Jain’s house in Saraswati Vihar on Sunday evening and ransacked all the rooms. The theft was reported to police after Jain returned from a meeting. Police suspect that the miscreants broke into the house through a service door. Jain also has an office at the house.
Jain tweeted the photographs of the ransacked rooms. His family was still trying to ascertain the amount of loss till late on Sunday. The miscreants seemingly took a
long time ransacking the house as all drawers and almirahs had been turned out. The house had been locked for the past six months.
The theft was discovered by his neighbours who informed Jain’s wife, Poonam, around 9pm. The PCR was informed around 9.30pm and a police team led by the area DCP later reached Jain’s house to probe the crime.
An initial probe suggests that the robbers had come equipped with house-breaking equipment and disabled the security systems before entering. A crime and forensics team has lifted evidences from the house. Police are also probing whether the miscreants were looking for specific or important documents kept there. Kitchen and bathroom taps and a few showpieces were found missing. An FIR has been lodged under IPC sections 429/ 19, 457 and 380.
