Ghaziabad, Feb 22 (IANS) Three unidentified men stole cash and jewellery worth Rs.12 lakh from the house of a former professor of Jamia Milia Islamia here Monday, police said.
The incident took place around 11 a.m. in the posh Surya Nagar locality bordering Delhi in Ghaziabad when former professor Mohini Anjum was at home along with her 27-year-old maid Gul Bahar.
After entering the house, the robbers tied Mohini Anjum and Gul Bahar’s hands behind their backs and locked them in a room. Then, they stole the jewellery and cash kept in the house.
‘They took away jewellery worth over Rs.5 lakh and Rs.275,000 cash from the almirah. After that they broke open the locker and took away Canadian dollars worth over two lakh. The total loss might be somewhere around Rs.10-12 lakh. Final inventory is yet to be prepared,’ Mohini Anjum said.
