A dacoity gang broke into two residential areas in Sorai Chapori yesterday night and fled with valuables and cash worth lakhs.
According to information available, the gang first broke into the rented house of one of the members of the Luitporia theatre group and fled with gold jewellery. In another attempt, the gang entered popular Assamese actor Nayan Nirbah’s house, ransacked the living room and fled with cash worth Rs 10,000.
A police team has reached the spot and are investigating the matter.
“Enquiry is going on, sniffer dogs are being roped in for investigation and we will take inputs from special sources, the culprit should be nabbed soon,” said a police official.
“We suspect it to be a handiwork of some local miscreants here. They must be aware of the presence of the theatre group here and made the attempt. Probabilities are high that the group will incur a loss due to the loot,” said Nayan Nirban.
