Siliguri, 20th August: An atmosphere of terror engulfed the Subhashpally area of Siliguri, after the residence of a couple, Dipendranath Bhattacharya and his wife, was allegedly robbed today morning around 10.30 am.
Reportedly, the miscreants entered their residence today disguised as salesmen. Then in an act of luring them into a conversation, the impersonators held an infused handkerchief over the couple’s face, who after inhaling it dropped unconscious. By taking good advantage of this opportunity, they robbed all the gold ornaments from the house and escaped.
On gaining consciousness, the confused couple called their neighbors. Upon receiving the news, the police reached the spot and are currently investigating the matter.
