The Nagpur residence of cricketer Umesh Yadav was burgled on Monday night by as yet unidentified men who entered the cricketer’s residence and ran with two mobile phones and Rs 45,000. Neither the cricketer nor his family members were at home when the robbery took place. The stolen phone belonged to the cricketer’s mother and the cash was stolen from the purse of Umesh’s wife according to ANI. The family was shocked to find that they were burgled when they returned home at 3 AM. Neither Umesh nor any of his family members have filed a police case, but according to reports, two suspects have been arrested.
Police sources have said that a team from the Ambazari Police Station has left Nagpur for Madhya Pradesh to catch hold of others who were involved in the crime. Police suspect that the men who burgled the cricketer’s residence were part of a construction crew who were working at the apartment below the cricketer’s flat. A police officer said ”The suspects are likely to have accessed the cricketer’s residence from the back side. There is some space which could have been used by the suspected thieves to enter the cricketer’s house from the flat below”.
Umesh Yadav’s manager is expected to file a police complaint at the Ambazari Police Station. Umesh could not go to file the case as he had to leave for Sri Lanka in the morning for the Lanka test series. After the test series Team India is scheduled to play five One Day Internationals (ODIs) against Sri Lanka on August 20 and a single T20I on September 6.
