Chennai: The car of a general manager of the Indian Space Reseach Organisation (Isro) was broken into and valuables stolen in broad daylight on Thursday.

The incident occurred when M Nagaraj, 57, had parked his car outside a popular restaurant in St Thomas Mount. His daughter, Divya was travelling home from the US and Nagraj had gone to the Chennai international airport to pick her up from Sriharikota in the morning on Thursday. Nagaraj lives in Sriharikota and is from Sulurpet in Andhra Pradesh.

 

After being picked up, Nagaraj and Divya travelled to T Nagar, where some jewellery was purchased for her upcoming wedding. Following this, they started for Sriharikota on GST Road, police sources said.

As Divya was tired from travelling, the duo decided to rest at the Isro guest house in Pallavaram before taking the Kakinada Express from there to Sriharikota. As they passed Asargana near St Thomas Mount, they decided to stop the car and eat at a restaurant. They then parked the car on the road itself and went into the restaurant to eat at around 2:30 pm, they said. When they returned, Nagaraj and his daughter were shocked to find that his car was broken into and a bag belonging to Divya was stolen from it.The passenger side window of the front side of the car was cut using a glass cutter and the bag was taken through it. Nagaraj then rushed to file a complaint at the St Thomas Mount police station. The bag contained a gold chain weighing 20 grams, a laptop, ATM cards, and education certificates belonging to Divya. The police then rushed to the spot and enquired with the security guards at the hotel who informed the police that the parking lot was full at the time and Nagraj had to resort to parking it on the street. They then acquired CCTV footages and found three suspicious looking men near the car.
