BBMP assistant engineer's house burgled in Nagarbhavi

The Jnanabharthi police said, Ramesh, an engineer in Kormangala division and a resident of Nagarbhavi II stage, in his complaint said that he along with his family, left on Friday to Tiruvannamalai, to attend a special Poornima pooja.

On his return, he was shocked to see that some culprits had forcibly entered the house and made away with the valuables.

Interestingly, the house is well-guarded with CCTV and resembles a prison with grills all around the house.

Despite this, the police suspect that the culprits could have gained entry into the house by climbing the water pipe. The culprits had climbed to the third floor, cut open the window grills and entered the house.

“The complainant is not coming out with the exact figures and the list of stolen valuables. Looks like the culprits were well aware of the premises,” said an investigating officer.
