Burglars loot two shops in Sopore

Burglars struck Monday night in this apple town of north Kashmir and looted two shops.

The burglars looted cloth shop of Farooq Ahmad Sofi at Main Bazaar and Kiryana shop of Muhammad Yousuf Bhat at Tehsil Road.

“They decamped with goods worth lakhs of rupees,” said the affected shopkeepers.   Scores of shopkeepers expressed anger against the administration and police, accusing them of failing to check rising incidents of burglary in the town.

A Police official said they have registered cases into the incident and started manhunt to nab the robbers.
