Chandigarh, May 19 (IANS) Cash and gold jewellery worth nearly Rs.25 million was stolen from the office of a finance company in this industrial city of Punjab Monday. The theft took place in the Miller Ganj area of the city where the office of the Muthoot finance company is located. The police have still not been able to identify the culprits behind the theft.
Interestingly, the theft first came to the notice of finance company officials in Gurgaon city adjoining national capital New Delhi when the sirens of the company’s Ludhiana office started ringing there after the heist.
“We think that this is the job of an insider as no lock was broken and there was no forced entry. We are questioning company staffers here,” Ludhiana senior superintendent of police R.K. Jaiswal said.
The company’s Gurgaon office informed officials here who called the police.
