“The burglary came to light after some people noticed broken pieces of suitcases in the nearby open field and observed broken windows and doors of the house from a distance,” they said.  

Confirming the burglary, in-charge SHO, police post Ajas Bandipora told news agency that an FIR (53/2020) under IPC sections of 457 (lurking house-trespass or house-breaking by night) and 380 (Theft in dwelling house) has been registered and investigation taken up.
