THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  Burglars struck at a textile shop in Kazhakoottam decamping with valuables worth `50,000 in the wee hours of Thursday.

The Kazhakoottam police registered a case in connection with the incident. According to the police, the incident might have occurred between 1 am to 3 am at 'Fashion Stuff', at Market junction in Kazhakoottam. 

The shutter of the shop was found broken by the newspaper agent around 4 am and apparently the police were informed. The burglars broke the glass cover in front of the shop after  breaking the shutters using iron rods and other machines. Two days ago, a similar attempt was made by a group of burglars at a textile shop at Kaniyapuram decamping the valuables worth `2 lakh. The dress materials including jeans, T-shirts, pants and other fancy items were found looted from the shop. The police are weighing options including the involvement of migrant labourers and youngsters.  “A probe has been initiated to trace the burglars who are targeting shops in and around Kazhakoottam for quite some time. We are verifying the antecedents and history of some burglars who are targeting textile shops and stationery shops. We received details about some suspects the culprits will be caught soon,” police said.
