MAPUSA: The Mapusa police arrested three persons after allegedly catching them red handed burgling some kitchenware items and cash from two shops at Mapusa market on Wednesday early morning. 

The police recovered kitchenware worth Rs 1,00,000 and cash of Rs 30,000 from their possession.

At around 2.15 am some staff from the Mapusa police station spotted some people walking on the roof top of the shops in the market and informed the Mapusa PI, about the same.

Mapusa PI Kapil Nayak informed that on reaching the spot he saw some people walking on the roof top and accordingly called more staff to surround the area. “Few of our staff went on the roof top to search for the accused and after sometime we found three accused persons attempting to steal some kitchenware and home appliances. They broke the sheets on the roof top and entered the shop. One was outside to keep a watch and two were inside the shop. They were on the verge of committing theft as they had brought the items and kept on the roof,” he told.

The items comprised of kitchen appliances such as gas stoves and other LGP items. The police nabbed the accused and after carrying out personal search, they found them in possession of cash amounting to Rs 30,000.

The accused were taken into custody and brought to the Mapusa police station. The accused are all residents of Belgaum namely Nawazuddin Bepari, aged 47 years; Shahbaz Bepari, aged 20 years and Shabbir Attar, aged 29 years.

“We have received two complaints from the shop owners and have registered a case under Section 457 and 380 of Indian Penal Code (IPC). During investigation we found out that in this area during the last few days the same modus of operandi was used,” he said.
