50 sovereigns, Rs 2 lakhstolen from bizman’s house

In another incident reported in Egmore, 50 sovereigns and Rs 2 lakh have been stolen from a businessman’s house and the police have detained one of the housemaids and her husband for interrogation. The victim, Kalyan Kumar, is a businessman and resident of an apartment on Casa Major Road. His aged parents stay at the house alone, while he is working abroad. Since their housemaids Lokanayaki and Shalini stopped coming to work recently, a complaint has been lodged raising suspicion on them. The police said that the valuables were stolen using duplicate keys and added that Shalini’s husband might have prepared the keys to aide the loot. Both of them have been detained for interrogation.
