A worker at a jewellery shop has been arrested for stealing 16 kilograms of silver over the past year.

The Srirampura police arrested Bapu, 26, a resident of Solapur, following a complaint filed by the owner of Armugam Silver Works.

A senior police officer said Bapu was tasked with melting silver bullion and making jewellery. He had been pilfering a few grams from each silver bar and taking it home for the past year.

His employer noticed that the weight of the melted silver reduced by a few grams every time. He kept a close watch on Babu and concluded that he was indeed pilfering the silver. He then went to the cops.
