Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Sunday alleged theft at his Saraswati Vihar residence near Pitampura in the national capital region, adding that all the floors of the house were thoroughly searched for hours. The AAP leader, who also holds charges of Home, Power, Public Works Department, Industries, Urban Development and Flood, and Irrigation, also took a dig at the Delhi Police, saying anti-social element and thieves have no fear of cops in the city.
"Theft in my house at Saraswati Vihar. All floors searched thoroughly for hours. Anti-social element and thieves have no fear of Delhi Police," Jain wrote on Twitter along with a bunch of pictures showing the ransacked premises.
The police received a call about the incident around 9.30 pm on Sunday and soon after hurried to the spot to investigate the matter. Meanwhile, a case has been registered based on the complaint filed by Jain's wife Poonam.
According to her statement the house was locked for the past six months and their neighbours intimated them that main gate seemed to be open.
After a preliminary investigation, police said some kitchen and bathroom taps and a few showpiece items are missing from the house. However, further inquiry is underway in connection to the same, they added.
