BENGALURU: An unidentified man broke open the window of Muthoot Finance’s office in JJ Nagar, on Mysore Road, to commit burglary last Sunday night. He fled the scene soon after the siren went off and neighbours alerted the police. CCTV footage was recovered to identify the accused.  

A senior police officer said that around 12.35am a man gained entry into the company’s office after breaking open a window.
