A robbery has been reported at the residence of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram in Chennai on Sunday. Police say cash and jewels valued at about Rs 2 lakhs have gone missing.
The robbery was reported at Chidambaram's residence on Haddows Road in Chennai's upscale Nungambakkam area. The complaint filed with the police said cash of about Rs 1.5 lakh and jewellery worth about Rs 1 lakh were found to be missing.
An FIR has been filed and an investigation is underway, senior police officials told news agency PTI.
Police officials also said they suspect someone working in Chidambaram's household since the former Union Minister and his residence are under police security.
Local media reports indicate this is not the only robbery in the same locality in recent times. Last week, a robbery was reported by a family that found their house broken into when they returned from a trip abroad.
