Jamshedpur: Theft at garment shop in Sakchi, lakhs of rupees stolen  

Jamshedpur: After days of fun making during Durga Puja, the city woke up to witness an incident of theft at a garment shop at Sakchi market. Criminals decamped with lakhs of rupees having broken open the shutter. The burglars had entered the shop, Jagjit Cloth Stores, after breaking the tin roof in the wee hours of the day.

The incident has been captured in CCTV cameras installed in the shop and the act of stealing the cash was evident from the surveillance camera footage that has been provided to the police.

Early this morning today when the shop owner Jaimal Singh opened the shop, he found the roof was broken and the cash box lying empty. Soon the news of the burglary spread across the dense market like wildfire.

The shop owner informed the Sakchi police, leading the OC, Sanjay Singh to reach the spot for investigation. “ We are investigating the incident of theft at a fashion clothes shop.  Though we are yet to get a formal FIR regarding the loss of cash and valuables, it is presumed to be considerable,” said Sanjay Singh. The OC said they have obtained the CCTV footage from the shop and are trying to press sniffer dogs to detect the criminals involved in the burglary.

Concerned with the burglary, the traders’ community have demanded the police administration to increase night patrolling in the Sakchi market where over 1,000 shops operate.

Taking a serious note of the spurt in incidents of thefts in the city, the Jamshedpur Police have planned a special police patrolling system during night in the Steel City.  “Everyday, one police officer from the police station concerned would keep an eye on the movement of constables deployed at different places under the system,” a police official informed. These constables would keep an eye on suspicious elements moving at night and check them.

Officials said that constables on foot would be deployed in a stretch of every one km for patrolling. Several other constables would be deployed for the purpose, besides patrolling by the local police.

“Burglaries have increased during this season as many families are away on vacation. Now that the election process is over, the manpower position is back to normality. Specially constituted patrolling squads have already been deployed under the limits of the Mango and Sakchi,” said police official

It has often been observed that burglars keep a watch to fix their ‘target’ in a housing colony or society before committing crimes. People whose movements were found to be suspicious should be placed under watch
