28 tola gold jewellery was stolen from the house of a deputy inspector general of the motorway police.
According to a first information report registered with Islamabad’s Kohsar police station, gold ornaments worth over Rs3 million were stolen from DIG Wisal Fakhar Sultan’s residence in the capital.
The police said a domestic worker, identified as Sabir Ali, was behind the theft. On questioning, he confessed to the crime and promised to return the stolen jewellery. But, instead of returning the ornaments, he fled as there is no clue to his whereabouts since then, the FIR said.
The police have launched investigation into the case with efforts on to trace the man.
