Telangana Railway Police on Friday caught five persons who allegedly tried to knock off six gold biscuits weighing 600 grams abandoned by unidentified persons at Nampally railway station.
Two days ago, two licenced porters were walking towards the platform from the main entrance at Nampally railway station when one of them saw a bandolier lying on the floor. Thinking it was trash, he kicked it and left. While coming out, he kicked it again, but realised it was heavy. “He became curious and told the other porter. They opened the bandolier only to find 28 gold biscuits inside it,” Secunderabad Urban Railway DSP S. Rajendraprasad said.
Even before they decided what to do, three others—a porter and two auto-rickshaw drivers—stopped by on seeing the the two porters. After serious discussions in hushed tones, the five decided to distribute the 28 gold biscuits among themselves.
They quietly collected the biscuits and left the place. The next morning, the two porters shared their gold biscuit story to their head who alerted the Chief Ticket Inspector Sabhavath Ram. The CTI informed the same to the Railway Protection Force officials who alerted the Nampally Government Railway Police Inspector.
On being summoned by the Railway Police, the porters and the auto drivers handed over 22 gold biscuits to the officials. “The gold biscuits had serial numbers and we realised six numbers of the series were missing. When grilled, three of them admitted that they kept back the six biscuits and retuned them as well.
