Dimapur, February 19: Unidentified miscreants broke into a Pharmacy on the night of February 18 and took away lakhs of rupees kept in the cash box, besides merchandise costing around Rs 2 lakhs.
According to an FIR lodged with East Police Station, the miscreants had entered Ideal Chemists, located at Nyamo Lotha Road by breaking the shutter locks and decamped with cash and merchandise.
This is not the first such burglary at Nyamo Lotha Road. Similar burglaries have been happening on the same road and Circular road for the past many months, but most of the time these incidents have gone unreported.
Absence of night patrolling by the police in Dimapur town has given rise to such criminal activities, which takes place mostly after midnight, the victims said, adding police should intensify patrolling at night and wee hours to check such miscreants.
