Assailants break into finance ministry official's house

New Delhi, Dec 2, 2012, DHNS :

Unidentified assailants broke into the house of a Union finance ministry officer at south Delhi’s Netaji Nagar and decamped with cash and jewellery worth lakhs of rupees, police said on Sunday.

S P Arora, a senior accounts officer under controller general of accounts, told police that the theft at the type four government quarters apparently took place during the wee hours of November 28.

“He along with his family members had left home for Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly district on November 27. Later, on November 28, Arora’s neighbour Kamal Bansal informed him that there was a theft at his residence,” said a senior police official, adding that Kamal had also informed police.

Arora returned home on November 29 and claimed that the burglars took away Rs 8,000-10,000 cash, gold jewellery, wrist watches and a digital camera.
Arora had taken possession of the house in April.

at Sarojini Nagar police station.

“We have begun investigation along with a team of fingerprint experts,” the official added.

In a separate incident, house of an Indian Institute of Technology Delhi assistant professor inside Vasant Vihar campus was ransacked on Saturday.
