Wayanad District Collector K.G. Raju who was in the city to attend a meeting called by the Chief Minister was robbed inside his hotel room on Sunday night. The thief got into the room by cutting the window bars and took hold of a gold chain that was placed on a table. When Mr. Raju woke up, he was asked to hand over the money in his pocket. The thief fled with the chain and Rs.5,000. The number of occupants in the hotel adjacent to the Secretariat was fewer owing to maintenance work in a part of the building. — Staff Reporter
