Now, burglars target police quarters

Home burglars are now targeting policemen. A head constable's house in the police quarters near Anand Rao Circle was burgled on Saturday night. 

Venkatesh, posted at the Hebbal traffic police station, lost Rs 3 lakh in cash and 14 lakh worth of jewellery. The policeman lives with his wife and siblings. The family recently attended a wedding in Rajarajeshwari Nagar. Thereafter, the family and other relatives kept all the cash and jewellery at the house. 

On Saturday, Venkatesh's family went to Mandya as his sister-in-law had delivered a baby. In their absence, burglars struck at the house. Around 6.10 pm, a neighbour called up Venkatesh, saying someone had broken open the house door. The policeman rushed back and learnt about the burglary. 

He then filed a complaint at the Seshadripuram police station and suspects someone close to him. Police haven't found any CCTV footage of the spot.
