Theft on first day of job in Surat

  • | Wednesday | 4th August, 2021

The theft was carried out in two-and-a-half hours on the day the women were employed on July 21.

Home help in India is found very easily as people often rely on people and don’t sign any kind of agreement or check ay background before actually hiring someone for work.

On the very first day they were employed as domestic help, two women stole cash and gold jewellery total worth Rs 19.85 lakh from the house of a diamond businessman.

Following a complaint lodged by businessman Kirit Vaghani, Umra police booked Rasila (55) and Sonu (30) who decamped with Rs two lakh cash and 510 gm gold jewellery. Vaghani, who lives in Maple Leaf Residency on Dumas Road, suspects that the women hypnotized his wife and she handed over the valuables.

The theft was carried out in two-and-a-half hours on the day the women were employed on July 21.

The next day, Vaghani family went to Bhavnagar and returned on July 27. On July 28, his wife noticed that the jewellery was missing from the bedroom’s cupboard.

Police collected CCTV footage in which the women are seen coming and leaving the apartment. However, police claimed that it is not yet clear if they were carrying any stolen material while leaving.

The women had come to the residential apartment in search of work and were sent to Vaghani’s house by the security guard who knew that the family was searching for domestic help.

Vaghani told police that his wife had a headache when the woman came to work. “His wife was in the bedroom and she doesn’t know when these women stole the valuables from the room. He claims that his wife was probably hypnotized and she handed over the valuables to the women,” said a police officer in Umra police station.
