Reports suggest that the aged woman was alone at her home in Anakapalli Gavarapalem Park Center when a thief entered inside the house and allegedly demanded money and gold. The woman, out of fear, gave the man her gold chain. The entire sequence of the event was captured on the camera installed inside the house.
