Jamshedpur: Criminals decamped with cash and headphones worth over Rs one lakh from a wholesale mobile phone accessories shop at Sakchi in the dawn on Tuesday, despite a night watchman doing his rounds in the area. Owner Vijay Singh, who found out about the incident at 9 am on the day, said, “On opening the shop, my attention went to the dismantled ceiling. Soon I checked the cash box where about Rs 10,000 was found missing. All the cartons containing the headphones were missing too.” CCTV cameras installed inside the shop covered the act of the loan thief who had broken into the shop at about 4 am. Sakchi Police said they have started the investigation into my case after receiving an FIR from the owner. "As the shops have to be shut down by 8 pm in view of the Covid-19 protocol, we had intensified foot patrolling in the market the whole night. But the theft at the wholesale mobile phone accessories shop took place at 4 am,” officer-in-charge Kunal Kumar told The Telegraph Online. Significantly, thefts and burglaries have increased considerably in the city with police doing little to check them. Thefts are taking place in residences and shops, but the police are neither checking such crime nor being able to detect the cases. (Kumud Jenamani)
