YARKHUN: Police are still in the process of investigation to trace thieves who broke into a house in Dizg village and took away cash and valuables worth over half a million rupees four months back.
The owner of the house, Mr Islam Uddin, told ChitralToday that in the absence of the inmates at least four people entered his house on the night of Dec 8, 2017.
When he returned the following day, the door of the house was closed from inside. The burglars had entered the house after breaking the windowpane and exited from the same window.
He said Rs210,000 in cash, jewellery worth about Rs40,000, two Japanese radios, two Korean double-bed blankets and other household items were taken away by the burglars.
He said on his complaint, the police started an investigation and later called three officials from Chitral who collected samples from the house and sent them for forensic investigations to trace the burglars.
On the basis of suspicions, the police also investigated some youngsters from the village but due to the lack of evidence later let them off. He said so far no FIR of the case had been registered.
When contacted, Yarkhun Lasht police station house officer (SHO) Sahibur Rehman told ChitralToday that the result of the forensic examination had not been received yet. He said the family was not cooperating with the police in further investigation of the case and as a result no FIR could be registered against anyone.
The SHO said the case was still in the investigation phase but the police would trace the culprits and bring them to justice.
