The off-spinner`s bag, which contained his passport, ten ATM and credit cards and a laptop, was recovered from the same vicinity. Some unidentified thieves broke into Harbhajan`s Ford Endeavour (SUV) by smashing the window-pane of the rear door on the busy National Highway No.1 (NH-1) near Karnal town in Haryana, police said.
