Mysuru: Burglars, who broke into a locked house at Vijayanagar 2nd stage, have decamped with gold ornaments worth about Rs. 1.65 lakh kept in the house.
The burglary took place in the house of V. Raman, located on the 7th Cross in Vijayanagar 2nd stage here.
Raman, who had to go to Bengaluru to attend a programme on Aug. 6 (Sunday), locked the house and left for Bengaluru along with his family after informing his friend Manjunath, to take care of the house till he returns.
