Posing as delivery executives three youths rob homemaker

Nanjangud: Posing as delivery executives with a parcel box in their hands, three youths robbed a homemaker of her jewels in Nanjangud yesterday. The incident occurred at Ramaswamy Layout where the woman was gagged and tied up. They made away with over 200 grams of gold ornaments worth Rs. 8 lakh.

The homemaker is Dakshayani, wife of Shambhuswamy, a high school teacher. The couple has a child and Shambhuswamy and the kid were at the school while Dakshayani was at home. At around 8.30 to 8.45 am, soon after the homemaker was alone, the youths rang the doorbell of the house.

Dakshayani opened the door and the youths told her that she had a parcel. Trusting them as they carried a box, she opened the door wide and the dacoits entered the house swiftly. They pushed Dakshayani inside and before even she could raise an alarm, the homemaker was gagged and tied to a sofa.

“Soon after I opened the door, they forcibly entered the house and then threatened me to hand over all the jewellery I was wearing. When I tried to raise an alarm, they closed my mouth with tape and tied my hands and legs. They also threatened to outrage my modesty and kill me. I was too scared to confront them and I was unable to scream. The three men then searched the house for a few minutes and decamped with gold valuables. They also removed the hard disk connected to the CCTV cameras,” she told the Police.

Dakshayani was bleeding from her nose as the tape was tightly pasted, covering her mouth and nose. She told the Police that after the gang left, she managed to reach the main door crawling and shouting for help. A neighbour noticed Dakshayani on the ground and helped her. According to her statement to the Police, the youths were conversing in Kannada, Hindi and Tamil.

Later Dakshayani told reporters that she had ordered some things online and she presumed that the parcel had come and she opened the door. The three youths had come on a bike. She told the Police that though the family had installed the CCTV cameras, they switched them off during the night. Also, the dacoits had taken away the hard disk that stored the footage.

Superintendent of Police (SP) R. Chethan said that teams have been formed to crack the case. Nanjangud Rural Police have registered a case.

    All Majors Players in Ecommerce and Courier Companies should ask their executives to wear their Branded uniforms and Display ID card batch. I Hope the Authorities will stop the vehicles of such companies and check if the staff is Complying with the same. Even big players in the market send small parcels with vendors whose job is to get products returned by the customers, such vendors without ID are used for the Delivery of Small Products less than 1000/- and products small in size to save cost, and when checked they don’t have ID. Also, RWA must make it clear to such Ecommerce Players that delivery staff without uniforms and IDs will not be allowed into the Apartment Complex. Also sometimes when there are extra crates of groceries an extra person without a uniform accompanies the staff in uniform, even this must stop.

    @Sanjay Kini
    Indians in 2022, have mastered he art of deceit and scamming. Your ID idea wil not ork as Indians are experts too in counterfeits.
    I live ion a Western country, and our banks here have outsourced the IT systems maintenance and customer services to Indian companies operating in India, as it is cheaper to employ those IT techies and customer services [people in India.
    One major police investigation conducted when the banks’ customers here in the West experienced their money disappearing through transactions they could not recognise, showed that the above IT techies and customer services staff, selling the user name and passwords of customers for $100. These companies in India protested saying that it was not their fault, and the Indian government joined too.
    The banks here have got wiser and even after they put security boundaries in place, we receive scamming messages, looking very authentic from India.
    Indians these days are basically dishonest, however educated they can be. That is the Indian trait.
    Since, you are interested in tourism, Western tourists do not visit India because of the propensity in India of cheating abd bribes. It starts right from the customs officers in Airport in India, demanding USDs to clear them quickly to the other obstacles like overcharging and downright deceit .In the case reported above, it was fortunate that this woman was not raped. This has become the malaise in India.
    Your PM Modi boasts of superior Indian culture ( being a wife deserter himself!) when he meets every foreign leader.
    India’s moral threshold is non-existent, thanks to its greedy politicians and the society-both have become cesspit of greed and dishonesty.
    The above incidence represents that degradation.

    This will become another unsolved case by the police.
    The Mysore police have nt caught the leader of the armed gang who led his gang to rob a jewellery shop last year. The police proudly gave news conference boasting the capture of the gang members, but not the leader!
    This woman should thank God that she was not gang-raped by the three men. In cases I have heard that crime seemed to be the final act of such robbery.
    This sounds like job the criminals got out bribing the concerned delivery company. Getting inside information through bribing the staff has become increasingly norm, from what I hear similar incidences where my relatives were the victims. The criminals left a warning to the woman at home , saying that they will come back, if she reported the incidence to the police. Knowing police to be utterly ineffective, corrupt too, there was no point in reporting the crime. In the above , the perpetrators had official looking IDs, well dressed and polite when they knocked the door.
    In this case, note that one of them spoke Tamil. In a case involving a rape in the open months ago , the culprits were |Tamils.
    Thanks to the efforts of MP Simha and others who encourage settlements of non-Mysoreans, more and more non-Mysoreans arrive to settle.
    Hawala money channel crimes, where the crime lords are Malayalees masquerading as businessmen , are resident in the UAE. These crimes are beyond the expertise of Mysore police. When the Mysore airport expands, a non-stop UAE -Mysore flight brings in more of these characters, one could see the escalation of crimes .
    Every one wants new model of IPhones, new models of cars, etc.. only in India!! Hence, the motivation for robberies.
