According to the police, the thieves had taken the shop adjacent to the jewellery shop on rent for starting a spices business. The work of making furniture was going on in the shop. Since a new shop was going to be started, no one suspected the thieves. On Friday, the jewellery shop was closed. The thieves took advantage of this and drilled holes in the common wall. They entered the jewellery shop and decamped with the ornaments.
When the owner of the jewellery shop opened the shop the next day, he realised that his shop had been robbed. After receiving the information, Senior PI of Warje police station Shankar Khatke, a team of the Crime Branch and local police officials visited the spot and started the search for the thieves.
