Police in Maharashtra''s Thane have asked the local residents to remain cautious while attending marriages and other social events in the city as some gangs of thieves from Madhya Pradesh were active in the region, who use children to steal valuables.
Talking to reporters, DCP (Wagle Estate) Dr Vinay Rathod said on Thursday that the members of the gangs mostly hail from Rajgarh in MP, who steal jewellery during wedding functions.
On November 30, some unidentified persons had stolen Rs 19 lakh-worth jewellery of the bride during a marriage event held in the city.
