In appreciation for nabbing the accused who allegedly stole Rs. 54.5 lakh from the office of Tharoen Poke Pond India (Pvt.) Ltd. in Alanahalli in just three days after the crime, Gen. Manager of the company Dr. Bhoopathi has announced a reward of Rs. 2 lakh to the Police team responsible for cracking the crime.

Dr. Bhoopathi, speaking to press persons at Nazarbad Police Station yesterday after the address by Police Commissioner, said that the Police team headed by Inspector G.N. Mohan had done a wonderful job. He said that the reward was a token of appreciation.

He added that a good sum of amount had accumulated in the cash box of the office owing to continuous bank holidays and the key of the cash box used to be kept in the office itself in safe custody which may have facilitated the crime.
