Hyderabad: Robbers did not only steal gold and cash worth Rs 85,000 from a businessman’s house in Nandivada, Nizamabad district but also left a note, stating ‘God bless you’ for the owners before fleeing, on Thursday.
“We are stealing gold and cash from your house. Don’t be sad for the act. God will bless you with more wealth, wait and see,” read the note the robbers left behind, according to a report by Deccan Chronicle.
The burglars broke into the house on Wednesday. The resident had gone to a relative’s place when the incident happened. The house is owned by Surakutla Bhaskar, a businessman. His father had just died and the cremation and other rituals were being carried out at a relative’s house.
When the businessman returned on Thursday, he found his house ransacked, valuables missing, and the explanatory note from the burglars.
“The thieves sneaked in and took eight tolas gold and cash, totally worth Rs 85,000,” said sub-inspector of Town III police, G. Venkataiah. “They entered the house by breaking the lock on the front door. They also broke the almirah, which contained the valuables, and decamped with the booty,” he added. A case has been booked under section 457 and 380 of the Indian Penal Code.
