The ransacked officeof Manish Sisodiade31 sisodia
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s office in East Delhi’s Khicripur was burgled on Friday with miscreants taking away ‘important’ documents, a computer and a digital video recorder with them.
With many other things in the office left undisturbed, Mr. Sisodia’s staff members have raised the suspicion that the burglars were “selective about the articles they had come to lift.”
They expressed fears of a possible misuse of the documents and the data stored in the computer.
In the complaint submitted to the police, Mr. Sisodia’s aide Upendra Kumar said that when they arrived at the Deputy Chief Minister’s camp office on NH-24 on Friday morning, they found that the locks of room numbers 5 and 6 had been broken open and both rooms ransacked.
“We informed the police. Their inspection in our presence revealed that a computer CPU, monitor, a DVR and some documents were not found there,” said Mr. Kumar.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Omvir Singh added that the burglars jumped the wall and broke the latch with an iron rod to open the gate leading to the rooms. Investigators added that the latch was very weak and was soldered in the past too.
‘2 or 3 burglars involved’
With a couple of finger print samples found on the CCTV camera, the police estimate that the number of suspects is between 2 and 3.
The missing DVR has posed another problem as it has neutralised the vigil of the CCTV as the data was stored in it.
Then the burglars went into the room through the window which was not locked from inside. There are two sets of finger prints, one on the CCTV camera itself and one at the entrance of the room. “It appears that around 2 to 3 persons had committed the burglary,” said the officer.
In his complaint, Mr. Kumar said the timing was suspicious as they had received the orders to shift on Thursday and a few hours later, the burglary was reported.
