Three Nepalis arrested for theft in M'luru

The CCB sleuths have arrested three persons from Nepal in connection with a theft at Maple store in Mangaluru and at Bajpe supermarket.

The police have also confiscated goods worth Rs 3.25 lakh.

The arrested are Ganesh Sorake, 30, of Bajhang district, Prakash Singh Khatari, 30, of Kanchanpur district and Prakash alias Sher, 27, of Bajhang district in Nepal.

The trio had apparently gained entry into the Maple store at Balmatta by removing the meter box and decamped with i-phones, Apple laptops and cash of Rs 1,97,980. After stealing goods, two of them had gone to Nepal, but returned later and stole digital camera, tablet and watches from a supermarket at Bajpe.

The police arrested Ganesh at Padubidri and confiscated mobile phones, laptops and digital camera worth Rs 3.10 lakh. The police have also appealed to hotel and house owners to check the background of security guards while appointing them. The information of the security guard should be given to the nearest police station, they added.

Women, kids rescued
The District Child Protection Unit and childline members have rescued two women and their three children who were engaged in begging in the State Bank area on Friday.

In the pretext of selling the National Flag, the five were involved in begging. The three children were produced before the Child Welfare Committee, whose officials directed that two children and their mothers be admitted to Prajna Swadhara Kendra for rehabilitation.

Another boy, who is 11 years old, has been admitted at the Balamandira at Bondel for temporary rehabilitation.

Cash stolen
Thieves gained entry into a house at Kavoor and made away with gold and silver ornaments as well as cash worth Rs 3.75 lakh.

The incident occurred when the house owner, Vishnumurthy, and his wife had been to the Udupi Sasthana. Noticing a briefcase in the backyard of the house, the neighbours informed the owner. The thieves apparently gained entry into the house by breaking open the back door.

A case has been registered.
