SALEM: A major theft was reported on the Yesvantpur-Kannur Express. The robbers stole items worth lakhs including ornaments, cash and phones of nearly 20 Malayali passengers. It is believed that the theft happened in between Salem and Dharmapuri in AC coaches.

The passengers' bags were found abandoned in the toilet after stealing valuable items. Some people who had gone to the toilet saw the bags in the waste bin and informed the passengers. Only then they knew about the theft. The theft happened when the passengers were fast asleep. So, reports said no one had seen the thieves. Even money kept in the pockets of pants was stolen.


The railway police suspect that a robbery gang focusing Salem is behind the incident. This information was obtained when the stolen iPhone was traced. An investigation has started following the complaint of the passengers. Most of the passengers robbed were those going home for Ramzan. It is believed that the thieves may have come knowing that there will be more passengers on a holiday.


There are major theft gangs in Tiruchirappalli and Salem of Tamil Nadu. There were reports earlier that some from here are ganging up and stealing in Kerala. The robbers are physically fit. The group arrives wearing underwear and masks. They attack people who oppose robbery with weapons. Their manner is to visit several houses in the area on the same day. They arrive as vendors and scrap pickers during the day and steal at night.
