Mulki, Sep 16, 2023: Gold worth nearly Rs 5 lakh and weighing 122 grams which were recently reported stolen from a house at Kadamballi Valya in Mundaje was strangely found on the verandah of the house on September 15, Friday morning.
The theft was reported form the house of Pramod V Bhide. The gold ornaments which were reportedly kept in the underground storage of the house were found missing on September 12 when Pramod’s wife looked for them to wear for a function. Subsequently a complaint was lodged. Repair works had been undertaken in the house in July for which nearly 13 labourers were engaged. It was suspected that it was their handiwork.
Now, that the gold has been found, it is suspected that the thieves out of fear of getting caught might have placed it back.
