PATNA: Thieves are giving heavy challenges to the high and mighty in Bihar.
On Wednesday, the thieves burgled the house of former Bihar chief minister Abdul Ghafoor located at Saraiya village in Gopalgnaj district and walked away with cash and valuables worth over Rs3 lakh.
The family members were away in Patna when the thieves broke open the back door of the housed and entered inside, reports said.
The villagers came to know about this when they found the back door open in the morning. In this connection, a case has been registered with the Manjha police station.
Ghafoor served as the chief minister of Bihar in between 1973 to 1975. He was a powerful Congress leader.
Earlier thieves had robbed valuables from the house of close relatives of former Bihar chief ministers KB Sahai in Patna AND Jitan Ram Manjhi in Gaya district. The incident had taken place in 2014.
During the same time, thieves had stolen Rs 1.14 million, 600 US dollar and gold jewelries from the Patna-based residence of a firebrand BJP parliamentarian Giriraj Singh in Patna.
Prior to that, thieves targeted Patna-based house of former MP Sadhu Yadav, brother-in-law of Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad.
Yadav in his complaint to the police had reported a theft of petty amount to the police but the investigation led to the recovery of Rs eight million in cash, some three kilogram of precious jewelries and Nepalese currencies. He too is being investigated by the IT sleuths.
