Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (SS)

Udupi, May 12: An unusual case of theft has come to light in Kola of Malpe in Udupi district. Suresh Lamani, who is working as a writer in partnership with Vaman Kanchan in a fisheries company has brought this unique case of theft to the notice of the police in a complaint.

In his complaint, Suresh Lamani said he had kept Rs 10.3 lac in cash that he had earned from sale of fish on May 7 and 8 in the currency chest of his room to be handed over to his partner Vaman. Suresh had even locked the box where he had kept the cash and had gone to Malpe port at 4.30 am on some fishery work.

When Suresh Lamani returned to his room at 9.30 am, he noticed that the money was stolen from his currency box as the thief had broken the lock and had barged into his room. What baffled Lamani was that the thief had stolen Rs 8.9 lac out of Rs 10.3 lac that was kept in the box and kept the remaining cash in the box before fleeing from the place.

Malpe police station personnel have registered a case and are investigating.

    I am sure this is from known person where the money will be kept.Such a big amount never keep it without watching or why not carry to bank.He thought may be owner may not count it .Dont they have any cctv in room?He too was bit afraid ,they may catch him when caught.Inquire around who has gone to bank with so much money or gone to Bar to enjoy a drink in big still.One day or other truth will come out .Sad such abig amount is stolen.

    This is reason NaMo insisting to use bitcoin / plastic money like credit card so money is safe! Please use Bitcoin for fish sales to avoid this kind of future problems. Namo is smart he pushed the economy so high that demonetization of 1000 Rupees not at all required as hardly anyone can afford it. Bitcoin is more trackable so even they can tax on 40% comission
