Nagpur News: A family “invited” burglars in their residence and “handed over” bounty worth Rs 1.93 lakh. The incident occurred in the Hudkeshwar Police Station jurisdiction.

However, the entry door was wide open. Some burglar or burglars took the advantage of the open door and entered in the house and straightaway went to the almirah and grabbed the bounty consisting of gold and silver jewellery and cash valued at Rs 1.93 lakh and decamped from the spot without noticed by the family members of Ravi Padole and other neighbours. But when Ravi Padole returned home, he and the family members noticed the burglary.
