The Vimantal police have booked a woman and her paramour for allegedly stealing ornaments worth Rs 8.4 lakh, while planning to elope to Jammu and Kashmir. The woman’s husband, Janardhan Nimbalkar (45) of Lohegaon, had lodged an FIR in the matter. Nimbalkar’s wife Rupali (35) and her paramour Bharat Sargar (30) of Sathevasti, Lohegaon have been booked in the case, said police.
Sargar has been missing with the ornaments and search is on to nab him, added the police. They have been charged for offences under sections 406 (criminal breach of trust) and 34 (common intention) of the India Penal Code (IPC).
