A case of theft has been registered against a girl and her boyfriend after she allegedly handed over her family’s jewelery to him to get money to celebrate their common birthday.
To save herself and him, she also tried to frame up another friend of hers, a minor, by accusing him of blackmail, Assistant Commissioner of Police Nilesh Sonawane told reporters on Wednesday.
On January 7, the teenage girl approached the Kapurbawdi police in the city with a complaint that her boyfriend had clicked her obscene pictures and blackmailed her for money. She was compelled to steal jewelery from her house and hand it over to him, she told the police.
The boy initially told the police that he had sold off his jewellery.
But probe revealed that no such sale of jewelery had taken place. The CCTV footage of the concerned shop had no footage of the boy.
Eventually police found out that the girl had, in fact, given the jewelery to another boyfriend for birthday celebration, and cooked up the blackmail story to save him.
This boyfriend, who is 18 years old and with whom she shares birthday, allegedly sold the jewelery in Manpada area for Rs 53,000 and funded their party.
Police arrested him and also the jeweler who purchased the ornaments knowing well that they were stolen goods.
A case under Indian Penal Code sections 380 (theft in a dwelling house) and 411 (receiving stolen property) has been registered, said senior inspector Uttam Sonavane of Kapurbawdi police station.
