The criminals had entered the house, which falls under Agamkuan police stationís jurisdiction, on late Saturday night. They then opened the almirah with a key, which was lying in the same room, said the police.
The incident came to light when Mehta woke up in the morning. A complaint has been lodged on the statement of Mehta, who owns a tour and travel agency in Patna City.
