FAKE LAMA DUPES FAMILY OF GOLD JEWELLRY

GANGTOK, January 2: A daring crime, and perhaps the most convincing burglary, has left Chung Chung Bhutia, a resident of Deorali Bazaar here bankrupt.

According to the complainant on December 30, 2007, one individual unknown to him dressed as a Lama in saffron robes entered his house after convincing the family members that he would perform pujas for their well being.

During the course of the puja, the accused asked for an empty pot and demanded that all jewellry with the family be put inside the pot. The family obeyed the fake Lama. The household was further instructed by the fake priest not to open the pot which he had seal and tied with a traditional khadha until the next day.

The next day when the family opened the pot, they were shocked to discover that the vessel was empty. The fake Lama had somehow took off with the booty of a golden chain worth two tolas, two gold lockets of 4 annas each and three rings of 6 annas each.

Following this, the family immediately filed a FIR with the Police. On grounds of suspicion, one Tshering Namgyal Bhutia, a resident of Kalimpong was arrested from Tibet Road here who confessed to the crime after the Police grilled him. A case has been registered under section 402 of IPC for cheating.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
