It seems that the thieves are no longer afraid of the police. Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. But as soon as the restrictions are relaxed, their panic has resumed. But this time the atmosphere is very hot as the thieves put their hands in the bag of the wife of a IPS officer. A case has been registered against the unidentified thief at Andheri police station and police are searching for him.
The complainant lives in the Nilima building of a famous IPS officer in Malabar Hill area and her husband is the Deputy Commissioner of police . On Wednesday, she had gone to Andheri Chakala area around 11 am for personal work. After completing his work, he caught a bus at the Mota Nagar bus stand in Chakala area of Andheri East. At that time, he got the ticket at Agarkar Chowk near Andheri station. She had her bag with his when she got the ticket.
But then she landed at Agarkar Chowk to go to Andheri station. It was not in his bag when she checked her wallet to get out the train pass while walking towards the railway station.
She went to the bus depot area again as she was suspected to have fallen in the bus, but she had escaped from the bus depot before she left. At that time, other employees of the depot called the conductor of the bus and inquired about the woman’s wallet, but were told that there was no wallet in the bus. As a result, officer’s wife got suspicion of stealing someone’s wallet and lodged a complaint at Andheri Police Station.
According to the complaint, his wallet contained a railway pass, voting card, PAN card, house key, debit card and cash amounting to Rs 2,500. Andheri police have registered a case in this regard and the search for the accused is underway, police said.
