Nagpur: Various factors like poverty, unemployment and urge to earn quick money has led to youth to resort to crimes like theft, way-laying, mugging etc. In what appears to be the work of a very professional thief, mobiles worth Rs 11 lakhs (Rupees Eleven Lakhs) were stolen from Dynamic Mobile Hub situated in Modi No-3 of Sitabuldi area in the intervening night of January 14-15, 2016.
The thief had managed to remove all mobile phones from the boxes and carried them away. The thief has stolen only high end mobile phones. The thief or thieves had probably gained access into the shop by bending the shutter.
Surprisingly, the thief or thieves had managed to take the camera and the entire system where the video footage is stored. It also appeared to be the work of a very professional gang or single thief.
Another thing that raised doubts is that this Mobile Shop is situated between two hotels. One is Jarat Lodge and Hotel situated on the right side of the shop while the other hotel is Hotel President. Both the hotels have security guards who work in three shifts. This means there were two Security Guards who were on night duty.
Were they sleeping during the night duty that they could not hear the metallic shutter being pried open by thief or thieves?
Prima facie, this theft appears to have been committed in the wee hours of January 15, 2016.
While speaking to Nagpur Today, Proprietor of the Dynamic Mobile Hub Deepesh Singh , a young boy said that earlier, they used to carry home all the high end mobile phones. But lately when the stocks increased they desisted carrying the mobile phones home. He added that the goods inside the shop were not insured. The metallic Shutter too did not have the Central-Lock which could have effectively prevented the shutter from being opened.
