The accused are Kavitha, president of a union of Mico employees and Ravikumar, (32), a resident of Kanakpura. Kavitha’s husband Manjunath also works with Mico.
Police said Kavitha had filed a case of robbery in March. She stated that three unidentified miscreants, including a woman, barged into her house and made away with gold ornaments after tying up her and her daughter.
Her mother-in-law was unaware of the incident as she was sleeping in an adjacent room, Kavitha had claimed. Police, however, suspected Kavitha’s version of the incident. Later, she confessed to staging the robbery as she was in need of money to invest in chit funds and handing over the jewellery to Ravikumar, an auto driver, police said.
