The office is surrounded by village office, hospital, and residential complex. Therefore, the locals feel it difficult to believe that theft had taken place here. Padubidri station house officer, Satish, has registered a case and begun investigation. The police have checked CCTV footage of different business establishments in the area.

District superintendent of police, Nisha James, Karkala assistant superintendent of police, Krishnakanth, Kaup police circle inspector, Shantaram, sniffer dogs and finger print experts visited the area and looked for clues.

He blamed Idea Infinity's irresponsibility for the theft and said that it is the duty of this agency to remit the entire amount lost to Mescom.
