HYDERABAD: A Hyderabad court sentenced a hotel worker to 18 months imprisonment for theft. Poinamaina Suresh (29), the convict, was also ordered to pay a fine of Rs 1,000 for stealing valuables from the house of the hotel owner. The court gave its verdict on Wednesday at the end of the trial on a chargesheet filed by the Thurkapally police.
A complaint was filed on March 5 this year by Kota Jagadish (28) accusing his worker Poinamaina Suresh of theft. The complainant, who runs a hotel business in Thurkapally village, stated that he and his wife left the house properly locked and proceeded to his in-laws' house at Ammanabolu village. When he returned, he found the house ransacked and the locker open. He expressed his suspicion that Suresh could have stolen silver ornaments weighing up to three and a half tulas and a gas cylinder from his house. The total worth of the valuables stolen was estimated at Rs 20,000, claimed Jagdish.
Based on the complaint, a case was registered at Thurkapally Police Station. The police collected substantial evidence and, based on it, arrested the accused. A chargesheet was subsequently filed in the court after the accused was remanded to judicial custody.
