Patna: Just hours after burglars broke into the home of a Patna businessman and escaped with cash, jewelries, and other valuables to the tune of Rs. 15 lakh, the Patna police broke the case wide open and arrested five men and a woman while also recovering the stolen items.

Among the arrested persons are Rohit Kumar, a former employee of the businessman and Sonu Devi, the house maid.

Stolen rare coins among many stolen items recovered by the Patna police.

As reported, Rajkumar Agrawal, the owner of 'Rangoli', a clothing shop, on Frazer Road, lives in a home in Bandar Bagicha under Kotwali police station. Like any other day, he left for work on Thursday morning but when he returned home after 9:00 pm, he found the locks of his door cut and his home turned inside out with all valuables missing.

Agrawal contacted the Kotwali police that jumped into action almost immediately under the leadership of Swarn Prabhat, the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) for Law and Order.

The police gathered video footages from the neighborhood and it did not take them too long to identify Rohit Kumar attempting to enter the home of his former employer.

Police nabbed him from his home in Adalatganj where they also recovered some of the stolen items. Under intense police grilling, he led to Sonu Devi where more stolen items were recovered.

Further enquiry led to the arrest of four more men who were identified as Rohit Raj, Vikki, Nikki, and Mukund, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Garima Malik said at a press conference on Friday.
