The complainant Sheetal Kaushik Thakur (36), native of Abhijit Bungalow, D K Nagar, Nashik, boarded a train for travelling to Nagpur on June 9 and reached the city the next day. Sheetal had kept her 50-gram mangalsutra, silver ornaments and artificial jewellery collectively valued at Rs 1.55 lakh. According to Sheetal, three suspicious persons stole the gold-silver booty of her while she was travelling in the train between June 9 and 10.

However, the theft came to the notice of Sheetal when she reached the house of her relative named Gangadhar Patel in Vijay Nagar coming under Pratapnagar police jurisdiction in city. Initially she had registered a case with Railway Police in this connection but since the theft had come to light in Pratapnagar police jurisdiction, the case diary was sent to them for further investigation.

PSI Thool has booked the three unidentified suspects under Section 379 of the IPC and searching for them.
