80 Days After Theft, Police Recover 1.3 Kg Gold Of Tirupati Temple
Eighty days after the robbery of three gold crowns from Sri Govindaraja Swamy sanctuary in the core of the sanctuary town, the police on Tuesday captured the man purportedly behind it and recouped the goods.
Nonetheless, the thief– Akash Pratap Sarodi, a local of Khandar town in Nanded area of Maharashtra– changed over the adornments into a gold bar in the wake of neglecting to discover any purchaser. He sold a little piece of the plunder.
The robbery had occurred in one of the sub sanctuaries of Sri Govindaraja Swamy sanctuary on February 2.
Tirupati Urban SP KKN Anburajan said six groups of 40 faculty buckled down for 80 days to capture the blamed. The SP said Akash, a mobile phone cheat, was associated with house thefts in 2010 when he was only 15-16 years of age. Expressing that Akash visited Tirupati every three-four months to take PDAs, the SP added that six to seven bodies of evidence were enrolled against him.
A couple of days before submitting the robbery at the sanctuary, he had come to Tirupati with his companion and, allegedly, led a recce of the place of worship. Akash had stolen the crowns between 12 early afternoons and 3 pm, which went to the ministers' notice just around 5.45 pm.
Afterward, Akash, in the wake of expending alcohol at a wine shop, came to Renigunta by street from where he took a train to Kacheguda. The charged endeavored to sell the trimmings both at Renigunta and Kacheguda, yet nobody was happy to purchase the gold as crowns, the police included.
"Akash's development was recorded on CCTV introduced on the sanctuary premises and Kacheguda Railway Station. At the railroad station, his development close to the ticket counter couldn't be recorded as the CCTV there did not work. Be that as it may, he was caught on different cameras at the station,'' the SP said.
The police confirmed the trains that left from the station at that specific time and made sense of that he was moving towards Nanded. Groups were sent to Maharashtra, however, neglected to get him in time. Meanwhile, Akash, in the wake of transforming the crown into a gold bar, had sold a little piece of it to a nearby pawn intermediary, and concealed the rest in his home. The police, with the assistance of his photo, proceeded with their pursuit. At the point when Akash went to his home as of late to sell the staying gold, he was gotten. In view of his admission, the police recuperated 1,351 grams of the bar and the little segment of gold that swore with the representative.
