Burglary - Again a burglary was foiled at the weekend in a bungalow in the precinct of the village. The burglars tried to enter the house which happened to be unoccupied that night, by cutting the door and breaking windows, they failed when trying to get through the glass, it was treble glazed. The burglars had to leave empty handed. Watchfulness and alertness by householders or families needs to continue.
