Indore: In a growing trend, it was witnessed that robbers had a field day at empty houses in five places within past 24 hours in the city. The pattern followed by the thieves is worrying as it indicates that some insider must have played a key role in this. It just could not be a coincidence where there were no residents present during the time of theft.
The cops must quiz the support staff of these families during their probe process. The support staff which include servants, drivers etc who are mostly locals cannot wash off their hands. Their alleged involvement in giving a tip off cannot be rules out. It is a matter of growing concern these days.
