Nerul police has arrested two accused who in the pretext of tying scaffolding around a housing society for maintenance work, entered a house and made away with gold and cash. The accused identified as Sajikul Shekabul Sheikh (24) and Mohammad Risal Azrul Sheikh (20), a residents of Koparkhairane, had entered the residence of a engineer-doctor couple.

Timeline Of The Incident

The incident happened on April 11 when the duo who worked with the group of labourers who tied bamboo scaffoldings, were working at Ishwar Ecstasy society at sector 28, Nerul. The tenants at the flat, an engineer with a telecom industry and his wife, a doctor, were at work when the incident happened.

“While tying the scaffolding, the duo realized that this particular flat at the 13th floor had no residents at the moment and also had no grills on the window. The duo opened the sliding window and entered into the flat and made away with gold and cash available in the locker of their cupboard. When the lady was back home, she found the belongings from the cupboard scattered across the room and the sliding window too was open,” Assistant Police inspector Sachin Dhage from Nerul police station said.

Navi Mumbai Police Arrests The Accused

The police learnt that there was presence of labourers in the society at the time of the incident. And only the ones tying the scaffolding could climb that high. Hence, the police started interrogating the labourers and eventually found the two culprits.

The accused had hid six tolas of gold and cash Rs 2000 stolen from the flat in the bushes near the society which was also seized by the police. The accused were produced before the court and have been remanded to judicial custody.
