BENGALURU: Burglars entered a private school in HRBR Layout on Saturday night and made away with Rs 26 lakh. The incident was reported to the Hennur police on Sunday.

The accused are said to have disconnected the CCTV before barging into the principal’s chamber, but from footage recorded before that police have established that three men were involved in the burglary.

Police said the incident took place at Royal Concorde International School and that the burglars cut the cables connected to the CCTV cameras in the corridor. They also broke open a safety grill near the back entrance of the school and then broke the lock to gain entry into the chamber.

Police have found that a man, whose face was covered with a mask, was cutting the cables while two others were helping him.

However, the footage is not clear enough to trace the identity of the accused.

“We suspect that insiders were involved in the crime. So we have obtained some other footage of CCTV installed in the area to trace the identity of the accused,” a senior police officer said.

The school authorities had deployed a security guard at the entrance gate of the school premises but he was not aware of the incident.

The incident came to light on Sunday morning when Mohan, one of the school officials, came for a special class and found that the principal’s chamber had been ransacked. 

School authorities said the cash was kept in the almirah to buy sports equipment and pay utility bills.
