Break-in at Dimna
- Contractor away on vacation hears about burglary at home, ailing woman alleges intimidation by landlord

Unidentified burglars broke in at a Hill View Colony home in Dimna, MGM police station area, in the small hours of Wednesday and decamped with electronic gadgets worth around Rs 2 lakh.

The owner of the house, one Nagendra Singh, a contractor, is away with his family to Odisha.

The break-in was discovered on Wednesday morning by one Bhuvnesh Kumar, who maintains the aquarium of the Singh family.

Kumar, who came to feed the fish in the aquarium at the front-facing veranda of the house, thought something was amiss when he noticed the door was ajar.

Officer-in-charge of MGM police station Shanker Thakur said Kumar’s suspicions were aroused seeing the open door. “When he entered the house, he found a steel almirah forced open and articles strewn on the floor. Kumar immediately informed the police,” OC Thakur said.

A personal computer, music system and other gadgets were missing.

According to the police, burglars tried to break open the almirah’s locker, but failed to do so.

“I talked to the victim over phone. He said he would reach the city tomorrow (Thursday) or the day after (Friday) and lodge an FIR. He expressed relief that the intruders could not open the locker as all the gold ornaments were there,” the OC said.

Police are estimating the value of the loss at Rs 2 lakh but the exact amount would be known once the contractor comes.

Kumar said it was miraculous that the burglars failed to notice the three gold necklaces that were placed on the deities in the puja room.
