CHITRAL: Burglars took away 40 tola golden jewellery and 396 dollars from a house in Balach, the owner of the house said.
Zafar Hayat, a local lawyer, said he had gone to Swat while his family was also not present in the house when the burglars came in and took away the cash and valuables.
He said last year 2,000 dollars and Rs200,000 were also stolen from his house in the absence of the family. He said the police should also arrange night patrolling in residential areas to check such incidents.
When contacted, the local police said a case had been registered and efforts were being made to trace the burglars.–GH Farooqui
