Speaking to mangalorean.com the owner the travel agency Moosa said, “On January 24, at around 8:00 pm, I had closed the office and gone home. Yesterday I had kept Rs 50,000 cash in the drawer. Today when I came to the office, I was shocked to see the glass pieces scattered outside the shop and the lock was broken. When I stepped inside I saw that the shop was ransacked and the thieves had destroyed my two computers, printer and other accessories and the cash from the drawer was also missing.”
Moosa further said, “We requested the adjacent shop owner to provide us with the CCTV footage which shows two persons forcing opening the shutter, breaking the glass door and entering into the shop. Before entering inside the shop they had disconnected the CCTV. They ransacked the office destroying two computers, printer, furniture etc. I immediately informed the Kadri police.”
The Kadri Police Inspector Maruti Nayak and PSI Maruti along with their team reached the spot and are investigating. They are checking all the nearby CCTV footage to trace the thieves.
