1 held for theft at Manipuri woman’s shop

Mumbai: A 23-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly stealing Rs 55,000 cash from a shop run by a Manipuri woman residing in Mumbai, police said on Sunday.

The accused, Nitin Sunkappa Pawar, a resident of Kalina suburb, committed several such thefts and robberies by targeting Manipuri people in the city, as he felt they would not approach the police after the offence due to the "language barrier", an official at Vakola police station said.

Yaomee Kahungsan, who runs a provisions store in Kalina, approached the police last Wednesday, complaining that somebody stole Rs 55,000 from the cash box kept at her shop.
