The miscreants did not broke open the main door of the firm, but, they broke open the locker and took away gold ornaments kept in four boxes. The dog squad and finger print experts visited the crime scene and collected some crucial evidences from the there. “The miscreants had thrown chilli powder in the entire office presuming that it might divert sniffer dogs. We are suspecting some insiders’ job in the case and will question all the staff members to nab the miscreants,” a police officer said. The miscreants had disconnected the electricity and CCTV cameras soon after entering the premises before committing the burglary. There were no security guards for the firm, police added. The Madiwala police have taken up a case and further probe is underway.
