A 33-year-old woman, who was alone at home having dinner without locking the front door on Monday night, was robbed of her gold chain by an unidentified intruder.

Police said an unidentified man barged into the house while the woman was having dinner in the drawing room, gagged her mouth with a tape and tied her hands and legs before escaping with the gold chain worth Rs. 2 lakh.

The incident, which took place in Electronics City, came to light when her family members returned home and found the front door latched from outside. Suspecting something fishy, they rushed inside to see Anitha lying on the bed with her hands tied and mouth gagged.

The Parappana Agrahara police rushed to the spot and are investigating. Police suspect that the attacker might have kept a watch on the house and noticed the family members going out leaving Anitha alone.
