Burglars struck yet again in Margao, exposing the police’s inability to contain them despite claims of intensified patrolling and other measures.
The flat of Amonkar family situated on the ground floor at Fatorda was looted of gold ornaments valued at over Rs 6 lakhs and also Rs 50 thousand in cash that was in the house.
The flat was locked as the family had gone to Amona in Quepem taluka to celebrate a festival. However, on Tuesday morning they were contacted by a family friend to inform that their flat was open.
The thieves entered the house by breaking not only the main door lock but also the lock on the iron grill fitted to the main entrance.
Ironically, the cash stolen from the flat was not the family’s but of the housing society that was kept in their flat.
