Wine Shop in Malad looted

Wine Shop in Malad looted

A nation-wide lockdown has been imposed on the country in order to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Owing to which, all shops barring the shops selling essentials have been shut down. Taking advantage of the situation, a group of miscreants broke into a wine shop and stole liquor on April 2. 

The wine shop situated opposite to Marve's Uncle's Kitchen was robbed by a group of masked individuals. The shop was identified as Balaji Wines. The incident of the robbery came to light after the entire robbery was captured on the CCTV cameras installed in the shop.

The footage revealed that two people broke into the shop and then began searching for alcohol. The duo was successful in filling the bottles in a sack. However, a sound outside the shop startled them and they ran away without picking up the sack. They took 2-3 bottles in their hands and escaped the scene.

The state government had announced a partial lockdown since March 24. Due to which, it seems to be a 'dry' period for people up to April 14. Meanwhile, later Malad Police reached the shop and have been searching for the thieves with the help of the CCTV footage.

In other news, the police have been actively keeping an eye on social media platforms to avoid spreading of fake news. Pointing out the same issue, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday warned of strict action against those spreading communal messages and “wrong messages” regarding the coronavirus outbreak on social media. 

 “The coronavirus sees no religion. I am warning those who are using social media platforms to upload videos, even for fun, while spreading wrong messages among people. Like COVID-19 virus, there is a communal virus too,” Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said during his Facebook Live.
