She mentioned in her complaint that the doorbell rang twice but nobody was there when she opened the door. “While I was having food, the doorbell rang for the third time and there were two unidentified men wearing masks with files in their hands. They said they had come from the bank regarding a new policy but I refused their offer and closed the door,” she told the police, adding that before she could lock the door, one of the men pushed her aside and barged into the house, while the other man stood guard outside.

They are verifying footage from surveillance cameras in the area to identify and nab the assailants.
