A theft to the tune of Rs 16 lakhs was reported from Sahibabad’s Shyam Park Extension area in which thieves decamped with valuables at a software engineer’s house. The thieves also bolted the doors of neighbouring flats from outside. The incident happened while the engineer’s wife was out of home. This is the same area where a major jewellery heist took place some months back. The incident seems to be the handiwork of someone who is familiar with the place, said the police.
