A team of the Baiyappanahalli police which had gone to Secunderabad to arrest a woman involved in a robbery at Hotel Leela Palace has returned empty-handed.

The team, led by SI Ramadevi, went there to arrest a call girl, who had robbed builder Vasanthraj of his diamond and gold chains, a wallet and an Ipad in the hotel on April 23.

The incident took place when he had kept his valuables on the table and had gone to the bathroom. The suspect is said to be hiding in South Goa and the police are likely to send a team there. She is believed to have cheated many industrialists in Hyderabad, the police said.
