Police are interrogating the staff of a wholesale cosmetic shop in the city, as Rs. 8.6 lakh was found missing from a locker. The theft has taken place without breaking the locks of either the main door or the locker.
According to police, the weekly collection of Rs. 8.6 lakh was kept in the locker on Saturday night by Jaiprakash, who had left for Udumalpet after securing the locker and the front door.
The watchman was shocked to find the door of the shop opened, without any damage to the locks and the locker in which the cash was kept, was also open without any tampering, this morning, they said.
On information given by the management, police rushed to the spot and are interrogating the employees of the shop, since they suspect this could be the handiwork of known persons.
