DSC_1146 (1)Nagpur News: Burglars continue their burglary spree in the city and even police presence in the area too does not seem to be a deterrent for them these days. Burglars looted Gold jewellery worth over Rs 15 lakhs from a businessman’s house in Indora area under the jurisdiction of Pachpaoli Police Station.

The burglars who had probably kept a watch of the house, struck on the house by scaling the walls near the main gate. After breaking the locks of the three separate doors to gain entry into the house, they entered and ransacked the house.
