New Delhi: In a major theft incident, Delhi recently witnessed one of its largest heists during the night spanning Sunday to Monday. Three unidentified individuals executed a break-in at one of Southeast Delhi’s oldest jewelry stores. Their operation involved skillfully navigating through adjacent buildings, disabling surveillance cameras, and drilling into a secure room. The culprits managed to abscond with gold and jewelry valued between Rs 20-25 crore.
The targeted establishment was Umrao Singh Jewellers, located in the Bhogal area of Jangapura in Northeast Delhi. Sources indicate that the theft took place during the night between Sunday and Monday, coming to light only on Tuesday morning due to the market’s closure on Mondays.
According to the authorities familiar with the case, the burglars struck at approximately 11:45 pm. To gain entry, it is believed they accessed the store’s terrace via nearby buildings, which had terraces in close proximity to the three-story shop. Once on the shop’s terrace, they forcibly opened a wooden door that was only latched from the inside. Subsequently, they employed a cutter to disable the CCTV cameras, six of which were installed within the shop, as well as the WiFi and alarm systems before proceeding to the ground floor, where the theft occurred.
