An elderly woman was relieved of cash and gold jewellery when she was travelling in an auto rickshaw Wednesday evening under the jurisdiction of Ganeshpeth police station.
Sources said Suman Suryabhan Donge (55), resident of Shraddha Nagar, Chandrapur hired an auto rickshaw at Ganeshpeth Bus Stop for Tukadoji Putla Square. When she boarded the auto rickshaw, three youths were already in the auto. The men tactfully stole 35,600 and gold jewellery collectively worth Rs 1.31 lakh from her bag without her knowledge. The woman realized the theft only after she got off the autorickshaw.
Suman immediately lodged a complaint with Ganeshpeth police station who registered an offence under Section 379 of the IPC.
