Jewellery shop burgled in Warangal

WARANGAL: Silver and gold ornaments were stolen from a jewellery shop in Warangal in the wee hours of Wednesday. The shop is located right in front of a police station in the town. Sources said 500 grams of gold and two kg silver ornaments were taken away by the burglars.

Shop owner Sanjay Kumar, however, claimed that he had kept two kg gold and eight kg silver ornaments in the wardrobe which went missing. He also said that Rs 25,000 cash was robbed by the unidentified robbers.

Mattewada SHO R Prabhakar Rao, who visited the shop, said a clues team and a dog squad have been pressed into service. What shocked the police was that another jewellery shop, located adjacent to the burgled shop, was not touched by the thieves.
