Guards’ Union sees insider’s hand, demands impartial probe into Audi Showroom theft case

A delegation of Maharashtra Rajya Suraksha Kamgar Sanghatana, led by Jammu Anand, the other day met MIDC Police Inspector Nalavade and handed over to him a memorandum demanding a thorough and impartial investigation into the recent theft incident at Audi Showroom in MIDC. The Union alleged that the management of the showroom seems to be hand-in-glove and an inside hand appears to be involved in the burglary. “The management is unnecessarily harassing the security guards and suspecting their role in the theft,” said the Union.

“The cash box theft took place at MIDC-based Jaika Vehicle Trade Audi Showroom in MIDC on May 25. But even after a week, the identity of the accused could not be ascertained by the cops nor arrests have been made. It seems that the job has been done by an insider,” the Union alleged.

It is pertinent to recall that a report in this connection was published by Nagpur Today stating an unidentified person struck at the Audi Showroom on MIDC Road and took away cash box containing Rs 5.75 lakh, petrol cards, keys of demo cars and other valuables. The theft took place between 6.30 pm of Tuesday and 10 am of Wednesday. According to a complaint lodged by Pravin Pandurang Pardikar (35) of New Subhedar Layout, the unidentified burglar entered the cashier’s room of Audi Showroom, situated at Plot No. G 17/18, Central MIDC Road, and decamped with the cash box containing Rs 5,75,750, petrol cards, keys of demo cars and other valuable stuff. MIDC API P N Kale, based on the complaint, has booked the unidentified intruder under Section 380 of IPC and searching for him.
