COVID-19 patient's house burgled in Bandipora village

Burglers have decamped with Rs three lakh cash from a house of a Covid-19 patient at village Saderkoot Bala during the intervening night of Sunday Monday.

“After one of our family member was tested positive for the coronavirus, the authorities had put the entire family at a quarantine centre to prevent others from getting infected with it,” said a relative of the patient.

“The robbers broke the windows and decamped with valuables and cash worth Rs 300,000,” he said.

Police have registered an FIR and a team of police and forensic experts, wearing proper gear, visited the house and took evidence from the spot.
