The burglary took place at a house belonging to tourism department contractor Madan Malecha in Kashi colony. The theft occurred when Malecha went to Hoshangabad for a family function. As per the neighbours, the front door was found broken and almirahs were ransacked.

Burglars also brandished a revolver at a man who peeped out of the neighbourhood late at night. Malecha has been informed about the burglary after which he has left for Pipliya Mandi.
