Newsline: Theft at Norway embassy in New Delhi suspected to be inside job

Several teams of the Chanakyapuri police station have been working round-the-clock to nab a thief who allegedly made off with several items of jewellery from the room of an employee of the Royal Norwegian Embassy. Prima facie, police suspect it to be an inside job as there was no sign of forced entry. Confirming the incident, Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) B K Singh told The Indian Express that a case has been registered under Section 380 (theft) of the IPC at Chanakyapuri police station. The DCP also said that police are coordinating with senior officials of the embassy to probe the role of an insider. Police said the incident took place on April 24. The complainant left home after putting her jewellery in a small bag inside the top drawer of her cupboard. “She locked her room and left for work. She returned home by 4.45 pm. In the evening, she was getting dressed to go out again when she suddenly noticed that some of her jewellery was missing,” police sources said. “Police are questioning ground employees, drivers, security guards and others living in the area,” a police officer said.
