SRINAGAR, June 24: Burglars looted valuables from a residential house, belonging to a family put under administrative quarantine, in Pampore.
Reports said unidentified burglars barged into the house of Zahoor Ahmad from Khanqah Bagh Pampore and decamped with all the valuable items.
Zahoor Ahmad while talking to media over phone said his family was put under administrative quarantine after his brother, a chemist by profession was tested positive for Covid-19.
He said they pleaded to the authorities to allow them to be in home quarantine but they refused. “When they refused to put us under home quarantine we requested them to take care of our property.”
“Next day one of our relatives visited the house and he found all the valuable items including cash and gold ornaments missing,” he said, adding that it was the failure of administration which led to this incident.
He said that with rising cases, more families are being put under quarantine, but authorities must either allow contacts to be in home quarantine or take care of their properties.
When contacted, station house officer, police station Pampore, Manzoor Ahmad told media that the family or their relatives have not lodged any written complaint so far regarding the incident.
“Once they will file a written complaint, we will initiate investigation,” he said.
