In Patna, Bihar, a gang of individuals posing as representatives of a mobile business seized a cell tower worth Rs 19 lakh. In the Yarpur Rajputana colony in the Gardanibagh neighborhood of Patna, a man named Lalan Singh’s home with a terrace had the Gujarat Tele Link Private Limited (GTPL) company’s tower installed.
A brief about Thieves steal entire mobile tower worth Rs 19 lakh in Bihar:
Lalan Singh claims that a group of individuals posing as representatives of the mobile company approached him and informed him that the organization was suffering severe losses and that, as a result, they had decided to remove the mobile tower. Lalan Singh concurred without verifying their identities.
After then, 25 individuals worked nonstop for three days to use a gas cutter machine to chop the mobile tower into pieces. Finally, they put the pieces in a truck and drove off.
According to sources, the stolen mobile tower cost Rs. 19 lakh and was constructed on Lalan Singh’s property over 15 years ago.
The police reported the occurrence after it came to their attention and started an inquiry.
It’s interesting to note that mobile service provider GTPL was unaware of the theft until Saturday when company personnel checked all of the abandoned cell towers and discovered that the Gardanibagh tower was missing.
This incident comes after a similar one that occurred a few months ago when thieves acting as water resources department employees stole a 500-ton, 60-foot-long iron bridge from the Sasaram district.
