A burglar stole about 70 sovereigns of gold jewelry last week from a house in Perambur belonging to one Imthiyas Aboobackar who lived with her mother and children. Her husband was working abroad.A week ago, she and her children went out on some work and when they returned home by 10 pm, the door of their house was open, all the jewelry was missing and all their clothes and belongings were scattered.
Imthiyas lodged a police complaint with the Sembiam police regarding the stolen jewelry. A few days later, they found a bag placed at their doorstep. On checking the bag, they found all their missing jewels. The thief should have feared police action and hence would have returned the stolen articles. The police suspect that the thief could be a person familiar with the family and have launched a hunt for him.
