New Delhi: Burglars allegedly decamped with valuables from the house of the personal secretary to Union minister Venkaiah Naidu in Lutyen’s Dlehi.
The burglary happened on March 31 and it was the driver, V. Kuttan Pillai, who informed the police about the burglary. Mr Kumar’s residence is located close to the office of Delhi police’s security wing.
S. Suresh Kumar, secretary to Mr Naidu, is in the US for higher studies and the house has been unoccupied for a year, the police said.
“Since Mr Kumar is not in India, it is still not known what valuables were taken away by the accused. Kumar has gone to the US for a year-long course. It appears that a large amount of cash and valuables were not kept at home,” said a senior police officer.
An employee of Mr Kumar’s office came to meet the investigators and told them that some electronic items were missing, but he also didn’t have much of an idea, he said.
Mr Kumar’s driver Pillai stays in the servant quarters and informed the police after he saw that the house had been ransacked. He informed Mr Kumar and made a PCR call.
Forensic teams analysed the spot and police is scanning the CCTV footage from the adjoining areas to gain clues to the accused.
Mr Kumar’s house didn’t have any CCTV cameras installed so the police doesn’t know at what time the incident happened.
