Theft in two flats at Hakimpara in Siliguri - Robbers fled with Jewellery worth lakhs
Two flats belonging to high profile personalities were robbed last Sunday. The flats are located in Haren Mukherjee Road, Halimpara, Siliguri.
On Monday morning next door residents saw doors of two flats located on 2nd floor and forth floor open. When they went inside everything in the flat was scattered. Soon police was informed. Lockers in both flats were broken and all expensive items were missing.
Locals say as Sunday night it rained heavily, robbers might have taken advantage of it and robbed both the flats.
The robbers had done quite a research before the robbery as no one was in both the flats and they belonged to high profile personalities.
One flat belongs to Kolkata Consumer Forum member Ongmit Lepcha who mostly stays in Kolkata and other belongs to Gangtok Kotak Mahindra Bank Manager Avarna Charabarty.
Police is investigating..
