JORHAT, June 2 - Continuing with the spree of vehicle thefts, burglary and incidents of snatchings in and around Jorhat town, the house of a journalist working in Dainik Purvadoy - a Hindi Daily published simultaneously from Guwahati and Jorhat - was burgled on Friday night with thieves taking away his scooty and other valuables.

Suraj Prasad, residing as a tenant at Sonali Jayanti Nagar under Pulibor Police Station here, along with his family four days back, had gone to his home in Tinsukia reportedly for NRC work.

Prasad told this newspaper today that on Saturday he was informed by his neighbours that the door of his house was seen open.

Thereafter, he rushed back and reached here late evening on Saturday and saw the entrance door open along with the lock broken. After entering the house he first observed that his Activa scooty was missing and the house seemed ransacked with household items lying scattered and almirahs open, Prasad said. He said the burglars took away about Rs 8,000 in cash, a few jewellery items and some important documents. The journalist added that the same burglars are suspected to have stolen a few clothes through the window of the house in the first floor of the same building. As the occupants on the first floor were present, the burglars may have abstained from trying to break in.

Meanwhile, Prasad lodged an FIR in Pulibor Police Station.

It may be mentioned here that during the last 10 days, three shops were burgled at Lachit Bazar area here, an Enfield motorcycle of a businessman stolen from his residence at Dohaborachuk locality, and a TVS motorcycle belonging to a student of polytechnic institute, who resides at Dewal Road here, was lifted. During the past four months there has been a sharp increase in incidents of theft in shops, lifting of vehicles along with incidents of snatching bags containing cash and also mobile handsets from pedestrians and pillion-riders by motorcycle-borne youths in and around the town.

In January this year, Jorhat Police had installed 32 CCTV cameras at different locations of the town under a project to assist in curbing crime.
