Srinagar, Oct 29: Burglars are enjoying a field day out in Soura area of east City –succeeding to whisk away with a variety –be it jewelry or even sheep, which people had procured for sacrifice on Eid-Ul-Azha, while the police is clueless.
Close to the Muslim festival scores of sacrificial animals were stolen from residential houses while jewelry and other commodities, as usual remained target for the burglars.
A few days back, buglers struck at the house of Arshad Hussain Dami of Al-Noor Colony Ellahi Bagh Soura and decamped with gold ornaments worth Rs 6 lacs, the complainants said. Elsewhere a number of sacrificial animals were stolen.
In another incident a burglary attempt was foiled at Masjid-e-Taqwa Soura by some alert people. The burglars however managed to flee from the spot leaving behind some theft tools, clothes and I-Cards.
The witnesses said the burglars struck the Masjid in the dead of the dark last week presuming that nobody would be there. “But it happened so that a Tableegi Jamat was camped at the Masjid who got alert and tried to grab the burglars,” the residents said.
The burglars were caught hold of by their Phiran, a traditional cloak, which they managed to remove to give a slip.
Police Station Soura SHO, Rafiq Ahmed said the case was being probed and that the “concerned Police Stations have been informed with regard to the I-Cards of the accused as submitted by the locals.”
Meanwhile the residents have appealed IGP Kashmir SM Sahai to look into the matter and get the police deployment in the area strengthened further.
