Thieves dig 10-feet tunnel and rob jewellery worth Rs 15 lakh in UP’s Meerut

Meerut Police have started a probe into the matter and action will be taken thereafter.



Thieves dig 10-feet tunnel

A bizarre incident is coming to light from Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut where thieves robbed jewellery worth Rs 15 lakhs from a shop by digging a 10 ft foot tunnel through a drain. The incident happened in the jewellery shop located under the Nauchandi Police Station area.

The owner of the jewellery shop found something fishy when he arrived at the shop to open it for business the next morning. The owner noticed a tunnel running through a drain and into the shop. He immediately informed the police about the theft.

The Meerut Police reached the spot and stated that the thieves dismantled bricks and mud from the drain’s weak boundary to enter the shop. The thieves ran away with jewellery worth lakhs of rupees.

Soon after the news of theft spread into the state, the Meerut Bullion Traders Association members reached the showroom to protest the law and order situation in the city.

After the ruckus, two police officers arrived at the showroom. The traders refused to let the police officers inside, saying they needed a senior official’s presence to look into this robbery and several others that have supposedly occurred recently. The thieves are absconding.

Meerut Police have started a probe into the matter and action will be taken thereafter.

Last month too, a similar incident took place where a group of thieves dug a 15-foot-long tunnel from a drain and attempted to rob a jewellery store, but they could not fully open the vault. Later, they scrawled a message of apologies to the store owner before they fled.
