The accused allegedly used the debit cards to make transactions of around Rs 50,000 and stole roughly Rs 3,000 in cash from various rooms.
According to the reports, the incident took place during the afternoon on September 12. The varsity had conducted polling for students’ union elections the same day. Three days after the incident, a complaint was forwarded to the police officials by the college principal.
On investigation and examination of CCTV footage at the hostel premises, it was found that some girl which looked more ilke a bot entered the rooms.
“We don’t even know the gender for sure… but if you look closely, the person looks like a man,” said a hosteller.
As of now, an FIR has registered in connection with the case of theft at the women hostel. Meanwhile, the college has beefed up security at the campus after the incident.
