Burglars steal cigarettes worth Rs 2 lakh in Telangana | Hyderabad News – Times of India


HYDERABAD: Burglars broke into a grocery store and escaped with Rs 2 lakh worth valuables at Shamshabad on Sunday. The movement of the accused was captured by CCTV cameras installed around the shop and, based on available evidence, police launched a manhunt.
According to police, two offenders broke the shutter lock of Raja Rajaseshwari kirana store in Madhuri Nagar of Shamshahad.
“Around 5am on Sunday, the offenders arrived in a white Maruti Omni van. Two accused, who entered the shop, wore face masks and, by breaking the shutter lock, they gained entry into the shop. We suspect that some of their associates might have kept a watch outside,” RGI Airport sub-inspector (SI) Deva Raj said.
The accused specifically focused on cigarette cartons and quickly stuffed Rs 2 lakh worth cigarette cartons in the sacks and left.
The incident came to light in the morning when the shopkeeper, Nagaraju, arrived at the store. Police were alerted about the burglary and CCTV visuals clearly showed two masked men partially lifting the shutter and sneaking inside. The offenders transferred the stolen cigarettes into the van parked near the shop and fled.
