Bantwal: Theft of 30 Sovereign Gold from GP Member Elias D’Souza’s House in Amtoor

Bantwal: The case of a huge theft was reported from Amtoor in Goltamajalu in the taluk on Saturday morning.

Thieves broke into the house of Goltamajalu panchayat member Elias D’Souza located at Amtoor and made away with 30 sovereign gold and Rs 7,000 in cash. The total value is said to be over Rs 6 lakh.

The post-centenary celebrations of St Anthony HP School in Mogarnad Karingana were being held in the school premises on Friday. D’Souza being actively involved in the school committee, he and his family were present there most part of the time.

Perhaps being aware of their absence from home for long, thieves jumped over the compound from behind and broke open the rear door. Then they broke open the latches of the next door as well as those of two bedrooms. Cracking open the wardrobes, they took away gold and cash.

Surprisingly, the theft is said to have taken place as early in the night as 9 pm. In fact, their neighbours had heard the sound of breaking open. But as the lights were on, they presumed that the family was back from the function and that some work was going on. Hence they did not have any suspicion. They too came to know about the theft in the morning.

When the family returned from the function later in the night, the theft came to light. The police from Bantwal, fingerprint experts, panchayat members and others visited the house.
