Unidentified burglars broke into a house in Ampalli village in Krishnagiri district, and took away gold and silver
jewellery and about Rs. 3 lakh cash.
The owner, Vijayakumar, was away for a week when the burglary took place. It came to light when he, a contractor, returned home after attending the funeral of his grandmother at Kundepatti.
Vijayakumar was shocked to see the lock of his house broken, and Rs. 2.75 lakh cash and four sovereigns of jewels stolen. On the basis of a complaint, Mathur police have registered a case and are investigating.
