Jewellery stolen
Gold jewellery worth about Rs 2.5 lakh was allegedly stolen from the glove compartment of a scooter parked at Govindaraj Nagar on Tuesday.

Prasanna Kumar, a Vijayanagar resident, told the police he had collected the jewellery from a Canara Bank locker and kept it in his scooter. On his way home, he met a friend and stopped his two-wheeler near Adyar Ananda Bhavan at Govindaraj Nagar. Engrossed in a conversation, Kumar and his friend strolled away from the scooter for some time. On returning, he found the packet containing jewellery missing from the vehicle. Police suspect it to be the handiwork of a few criminals who follow bank customers and rob them of their valuables.

In another case, miscreants sprayed a white powder on a trader – leaving him wildly scratching his body — and robbed him of silver rings worth Rs 2 lakh.

Ashok Sahu, in his complaint to the police, stated that one of his scooter tyres went flat and he stopped his vehicle at a vulcanising shop to fix it. While the mechanic worked on it, two men walked up to him and sprayed some white powder on him.

Sahu said he started feeling itchy and rushed to fetch water. When he returned, he found silver rings worth Rs 2 lakh kept in the glove compartment of the scooter missing.
