BHUBANESWAR: A group of unidentified miscreants barged into the house of a businessman at Bijay Vihar in Samantarapur area on Wednesday and decamped with gold ornaments, `30,000 cash, a mobile phone and a laptop.

The incident occurred in wee hours of the day as the miscreants managed entry through back door.

Police said the miscreants entered the house at around 3.30 am when the owner Md Shakir and his family were asleep. Shakir woke up on hearing a noise when the gang was busy collecting valuables from a cupboard.

Before he could raise an alarm, the burglars sprayed a sleep-inducing solution which left everyone in the house unconscious. By the time Shakir and other members of his family regained senses, the miscreants had fled with the booty.

A scientific team and dog squad of the Police Commissionerate rushed to the spot. On the basis of a complaint lodged by Shakir, Dhauli police registered a case.
