2 Jeedimetla boys steal Rs. 4L cash from home, replace them with fake notes

Hyderabad: Two kids – brothers aged 8 and 9 – stole about Rs. 4 lakh cash from their almirah over the course of a month and handed it to their teenage neighbours who spent it lavishly with their friends in Jeedimetla. The two boys then replaced some of the stolen currency with fake children's bank currency to avoid being caught by their parents.

On 23 April, Pabolu Shivashankar Gupta kept Rs. 4 lakh in the almirah at his home. On 9 May, he found that the money had been stolen. When he asked his wife and his two young sons about the missing money, the boys informed him that they had taken the money and given it to their two 14-year-old neighbours.

The two teenagers had visited the boys and showed them their smart watch, sports watch, spinners, and headphones. They told the children they would give them all these items for money. The teenagers took the money from the two boys and gave them fake currency notes to replace the stolen ones.

Following a complaint from Mr. Shivashankar, a case was booked against the teenagers under sections 380, 420, 406, and 506 of the IPC. The police are yet to start the recovery process. A special juvenile police unit will initiate procedures as per the Juvenile Justice Act soon, the police said.
