New Delhi: The office of President Pratibha
Patil`s Officer on Special Duty was burgled in the
high-security Rashtrapati Bhavan complex.

The office of Wing Commander Vikram Dutta, which is
located in the health club of the Presidential Estate, was
burgled on Wednesday and the thieves walked away with his
computer, police officials said.

While a case was registered on September four, police
officials believed that the job was that of an insider who has
also walked away with six dumbbells from the health club.

Tasmim Ahmed, caretaker of the health centre, had given
the office keys to a CPWD employee who had then returned it to
him after clearing the rain water accumulated inside the
centre on Wednesday night, they said.

But when Ahmed came on duty the next day he found the
doors of the health centre open and some items missing from
the Wing Commander`s room, police said.

"We have registered the case and investigating the
matter. It seems to be an insider`s job. Authorities need to
fix the responsibility," a senior police official said.
Security personnel posted at the health centre were being
questioned by the police, he said.
