Udupi, Feb 20: Three women wearing burqa cheated a jewellery merchant by exchanging fake gold ornaments with real ones. A complaint in this regard has been filed with Udupi town police station.

Three women aged between 35 years to 45 years walked into Maruti Jewellers situated on Kanakadasa Road on Sunday, February 18 at around 7.30 pm. They bought a gold bracelet weighing 15.800 grams for which they had brought a necklace weighing 31.49 grams and a earring weighing 10.94 grams to exchange.

But, during the process of exchange, the three women changed the original ornaments and replaced them with similar looking fake ornaments and cheated the jeweller.

They cheated and took away genuine gold ornaments worth Rs 1,98,923 before they vacated the shop.

    I find all who are against Burka should be still.It is not their dress stole gold.Shopkeepers intellgence or negligence was amin cause.Even there are women come in without Burka and with their tricks steal gold in jewellary shop.Let one wear want they want ,Important is People who come in with this trick should be caught fast and punished before they do elsewhere.Public should help .Shopkeepers should be careful when such a group comes in and try to sell gold.Always ask for a ID .before they do business.for your security.

    While it's concerning that a burqa-clad individual committed a crime by cheating a gold shop and fleeing with money, it's important to address the root cause of the issue rather than proposing a ban on burqas. Banning burqas would unfairly penalize law-abiding individuals who choose to wear them for religious or cultural reasons. Instead, efforts should focus on enhancing security measures and law enforcement strategies to prevent and apprehend criminals, regardless of their attire. Targeting specific garments is not a sustainable solution and may infringe on personal freedoms. Therefore, I recommend advocating for comprehensive measures that address security concerns while upholding individuals' rights to religious expression and personal choice.

    No religious expression at all. It itself originated from a bunch of thieves and rioters to spread around the world

    It is a crime, as usual, committed by a person disguised in a burqa. The fault lies not in the burqa itself, but in the individual's malicious intent. This act should be condemned and the perpetrator, regardless of their disguise, must be held accountable under the penal code. It's essential to refrain from labeling all burqa-clad women based on the actions of a few individuals.

    Aithappa..Sakappa... Listen., Islam does not work with people's opinions. It is already established by the Quran and Hadith. The theme was cheating the shopkeeper. You do not need to discuss Burkha here, even if you do, If you can't take heat, you should get out of the kitchen.

    Time to ban burkha in public places and give Muslim women the freedom they deserve, legally.

    You do not deserve to talk about it. Muslim women enjoy greater freedom than you do. They drive Ferraris, Maruthi, and even scooters while wearing burkha. They are free, whether in India, Saudi Arabia, or any other country.

    How that is possible?? Jeweler will only give money once he cross checks the gold and once he doesn't it he doesn't gives back to the customer. If customer has asked for any reason then the shopkeeper responsibility to keep a eye on him. This shows even the shopkeeper was careless

    Why our udupi/Mangaluru shop owners become manga in front of ladies evenafter wearing burqa is the main question behind the scene. Men should stop drooling looking at the beautiful ladies face to face or looking at the photos published in media who are taking IPS as their profession. Should stop looking at the women driving cars and avoid you falling in the ditches/ponds/mini wells which are plenty on our roads....Concentrate on your works guys and avoid dangers. Now, we dont know who wore this burqa. Burqa can be worn by men/women from other communities. In the crowded city buses burqa clad men enter and do robbing, blocking, touching touching n what not. Bahufarak kujumer ollullar ye?

    Years ago on YouTube there was a viral video of a woman stealing a laptop from shop hiding it between her legs after pulling her saree. So I wonder if the punchline must be, saree clad women steals laptop?
