Gold and ornaments worth over Rs.30 lakh have been reported stolen from a jewellery at Haripad near here.

According to the police, a person residing near the shop noticed the broken lock of the backdoor and grill of the shop on Wednesday morning and alerted the owner, who in turn informed the police. Though the owner first told the police that silver weighing two kilograms too had gone missing, the police found the silver in the shop itself. Further enquiries revealed that a total of two kilos of gold was missing from the shop. Police have registered a case and are investigating.
